Second grade students have been learning non-fiction writing skills for the past month, which culminated in a Writer’s Celebration on Friday hosted by teachers Ms. Harris and Ms. Cunningham.
Students have been creating multiple books and incorporating nonfiction text into their writing. In the process, they have learned and practiced editing skills. As a grand finale to the project, each child chose their favorite book to ‘publish’ for the celebration, complete with illustrations and photographs. Parents and peers gathered around in groups to share the beautifully presented books, and students shared information about a range of different subjects, including different countries, food, and animals.
