Celebration Time…

Sharing the Fruit of Our Labor…

The Activity center reverberated with tiny little pearls of wisdom as our first and second graders turned into wise and articulate writers. Having worked all quarter on their informative booklets, these budding writers were now ready to share the fruit of their labor with their peer group. They pored over each other’s work, taking in all the information, and posted comments, feeling very much like real, mature authors. It was really a sight to behold, these little youngsters commenting and critiquing on their partner-writer’s books, each being extremely careful to give the positive feedback first. The topics ranged from the ever-popular soccer and basketball, to the more bizarre rare snakes and other little-known creatures, to some amazing facts about the solar system… These youngsters were ready to bowl anyone over with their charm! The comments reflected the maturity and seriousness with which these young authors are taking their writers workshop, and the quality of their written work reflected their own, as well as their teachers’ dedication. Way to go, young writers!
