The fourth grade scientists in Mrs. Mann's classes wrote picture books to share all they know about science vocabulary words that they have been studying. The students chose their own science topics to feature in their books. Each student designed, drafted, and revised/edited their picture book. After publishing their stories, they read them to a younger audience. Writing is fun in Science!
'Tis the season for sharing good books with friends! These young authors have been working hard on all sorts of books to share with their writing buddies. Some of our SC kindergartners and first graders enjoyed reading their picture books to the third graders. The second graders in Mrs. Penick's class paired up with the fourth graders in Mrs. Dungan's class to share their writing pieces. All students shared in the joy of reading their published books to a friend!
Meanwhile, Mrs. Jacobson's second graders, spent some time reading books with flashlights by the fireside. It looks like a cozy celebration of reading!
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.
Mrs. Clark's kindergartners had fun sharing their newly written pattern books with Mrs. Barrett's third grade class. When student authors have the opportunity to publish and share, their energy for the next project is heightened. These writers have so much to say!
The kindergartners in Mrs. Tipton's and Mrs. Anderson's class enjoyed reading with Mrs. Jacobson's and Ms. McGehee's second graders. They took turns reading books by published authors as well as books they had published themselves as authors. Celebrating readers and writers is so much fun!
Mrs. Bradham's first graders met with Mrs. Rogers' kindergartners to celebrate the publication of their fall pattern books. These young writers also acted out and retold the story of The Ant and the Grasshopper. Storytelling is a great way to invite young writers to orally rehearse their stories as a precursor to writing.
Our writing partnerships at Spring Creek for the 2017 school year have begun! Each year, classrooms across our campus are paired up so that our authors are able to share their published pieces with an audience. Publication is truly valued here at Spring Creek, and we want to honor and celebrate our writers.
Mrs. Moore's first grade class and Mrs. Richards' third grade class have just finished their first published piece, so they have decided to read and share with their writing buddies. Thanks to these magnificent authors for kicking off our writing partnerships this year!
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.

Congratulations to all of our artists and authors!
Spring Creek students recently celebrated Read Across America Week and Dr. Seuss's birthday by reading and writing all throughout the campus. Mrs. Hugghin's fourth graders met with Mrs. Smith's second graders to read their books about historical figures in America.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Moore's first grade class wrote their very own rhyming books in honor of the great Dr. Seuss. Students were filled with the excitement of reading!
It has been a fabulous December filled with student publications here at Spring Creek!
