Below is Room 111's first published book of the year! After a few weeks of brainstorming, writing, editing and illustrating a story about their favorite moment of our Farm field trip, the students finally have a published e-book for you to enjoy. Become a part of our classroom's virtual Writer's Workshop as you enjoy listening to the stories written, illustrated and recorded by each and every student. The entire non-fiction personal narrative process was quite a journey for the children with a lot of writing, rewriting and editing on paper first, but well worth it in the end!
After each child had finished publishing their own story on their personal iPad, we had a celebration of their hard work, creativity and writing. The iPads were cued up to their story and set up around the room. The children then rotated around the room, listening to each child's story. When they were finished listening to the story, they wrote a compliment on a sheet of paper placed next to that particular iPad before moving onto the next story. Not only did they really enjoy listening to their classmates stories, but they also had a sheet (sometimes two sheets) of paper with all the wonderful reviews of their own book to take home with them.
