5th Graders Create Children's Picture Book
October 30, 2015 -- Salem Upper Elementary students in Mrs. Letchworth’s 5th grade English class just completed a writing project that included them creating a children’s picture book. They all went above and beyond Mrs. Letchworth’s expectations and used their imaginations to show their creativity. Several writing standards were covered in their books, including the following: establish a situation, organize events in time order, introduce the narrator and/or characters, use a graphic organizer to plan the narrative in their pre-write, and develop experiences and events. Our 5th graders ended the unit by reading their books to the 2nd and 3rd graders in the building. They loved them!
