Welcome to Camp Write A Lot!
Students in Amy Heis and Mirinda Roberts' classes had the chance to share their nonfiction books with their fellow students today in a camp setting, complete with tents, flashlights and s'mores!
From books about their favorite games and toys to ones describing how to paint, students were able to develop and "publish" their own books based on their interests.
Today's celebration wraps up the Lucy Calkin's Nonfiction Series for these Helke students. Calkins, an educator and author, created an approach to teaching children to write centered on the actual process of writing.
Today was the second writing celebration for these students this school year.
