About a month ago, Mrs. Anderson decided to make Fridays free writing time for her kindergartners. Her authors LOVED the idea! During this time, Mrs. Anderson encourages her students to write and draw whatever they want. When writers choose topics that they care about and are not tied to a certain genre, it is called a non genre specific project. It may be that students are writing poems. a creative story, or another genre of interest. Mrs. Anderson has noticed how engaged the students are in their writing during this time. This is something she plans to continue with her future writers as well!
Our Spring Creek Publishing Night 2017 was a grand celebration of all our young artists and authors! It was so exciting to see these writers sharing their own published stories with their families. Honoring these young authors and marveling over their growth throughout the year is so important here at Spring Creek.
Congratulations to all of our artists and authors!
Many of our Spring Creek students and teachers made time to Drop Everything And Read yesterday! Some students and teachers visited our camp out rooms to enjoy some reading time. Ms. Kahan's kindergarten class really enjoyed reading stories in the beach room! The students in Mrs. Moore's first grade class and Mrs. Clark's kindergarten class had a different celebration for National DEAR Day. They had mystery readers from the community come in and read to them. It's always fun to celebrate the joy of reading books!
The writers in Mrs. Smith's second grade class shared their All-About books with Mrs. Hugghin's fourth grade class. It has been so neat to watch the Writing Partnerships grow this year at Spring Creek. You can really tell the how much these writers appreciate having each other to share their publications with.
