Second Grade Students Create Original Books

Second grade students at Bancroft Elementary School spent the last few weeks becoming authors and illustrators. The students started with an outline to plan the plot for their books. Then, after much writing, editing and revising, each student created a final hardback book. Finally, they added illustrations and their books were complete and ready to share.

To share their books, they held an Author’s Celebration in the second grade pod. Students read each other’s stories and wrote helpful reviews telling something they liked, noticed, thought or wondered about each book. It was an exciting day and students were so proud to share their work. Books will be on display and available to read on a special bookshelf in the Author’s Corner of the second grade pod throughout the year. Students obtained the hardback books through a grant from the Kennett Education Foundation that was requested by second grade teacher Mrs. Sherri Donnell.
