Last week, student authors shared their published pieces and writing portfolios with their families at our annual SC Publishing Night. It was an amazing night for all of our Spring Creek authors and artists! The students enjoyed reading and talking about their books. It was a special night to celebrate all the writing collections of these published young authors!
In addition to honoring our student authors, we also celebrated National Poem in Your Pocket Day last Thursday. As part of National Poetry Month in April, student poets wrote and shared poems throughout the school. All through the hallways, students and staff picked a poem to carry in their pocket for the day. It was fun to see the excitement and joy that poetry can bring!
The unexpected, yet welcomed snowfall, set the perfect mood for celebrating poetry and drinking hot chocolate. Mrs. Dungan's fourth grade writers wrote and read poetry throughout the chilly day. These incredible poets shared a variety of poetry pieces! You can find all of the hot chocolate poetry offerings HERE on Mrs. Dungan's class website.
Last Thursday, Spring Creek students celebrated the NCTE's National Day on Writing! This special day is held every year on October 20. It is a day for celebrating and sharing writing! It looks like our Spring Creek writers had a blast writing about the things they love.
Take a look at some of the writing from Mrs. Penick's second grade class. Her students wrote Halloween poems while listening to spooky music!
Check out Mrs. Moore's first graders making books and sharing stories from the heart! These writers certainly have so many reasons for writing.
Some of our third and fourth grade writers created these color poems. They are filled with sensational similes!
Mrs. Dungan's fourth grade students were celebrated as poets a few weeks ago. After immersing themselves in the genre and carefully studying the art of poetry, students crafted their own poems. Each student had the opportunity to share their poetry anthology with friends and family at a poetry party. A few parents joined in the celebration to honor these young poets by reading a favorite poem to the group. It was a memorable experience for all!
