Authors and Illustrators in Grade 2

In second grade enrichment students are putting the finishing touches on books that they are creating for a kindergarten friend.  Book topics were picked by K students, based on their interests...but they did not know what I was going to do with my interest survey!

During the publishing process I have seen amazing teamwork.  Some students are co-authoring works and so have really had to collaborate on both stories and pictures. Other students have worked independently, but in the finishing phase are relying on classmates to listen to their finished work as they practice reading it and prepare to read it to their kindergarten friend.  I have enjoyed listening to and learning alongside students as they maneuver the writing process.  The ideas and imagination of students makes each class full of joy! I hope to post some of their original work, or excerpts on the enrichment blog in the near future, so stay tuned!
