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!
Ms. McGehee's second graders recently published their All about Books. They decided to share with their writing buddies in Mrs. Anderson's kindergarten class.
It looks like the writers had a lot of fun sharing the writing topics that they care about and already know a lot about. These young authors are busy celebrating publication and the power of partnerships!
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!
The Kindergartners in Mrs. Clark's class and the First graders in Mrs. Shafer's class were eager to share their favorite pattern books with their Third grade writing buddies. The students in Mrs. Barrett's and Ms. Knowles' class were a perfect audience! Several of these Kindergarten writers will be featured in the library author corner as well. Way to go authors!
We are so very thankful for our writing partnerships here at Spring Creek! The students in Mrs. Bradham's first grade class and the kindergartners in Ms.Kahan's class are certainly grateful to have their writing buddies.
Just look at the all the sharing of books happening between Mrs. Anderson's kindergartners and Ms. McGehee's second graders! It looks like some great conversations are taking place as well. It is such a special time for all these writers!
