To celebrate the completion of their review-writing unit for writers’ workshop, students in Jane Dady and Kerrin Faulkner’s first-grade class at Northwest School in the participated in a publishing party.

During the five-week unit, students wrote about their interests, such as their favorite sport, vacation and friend. Showcasing their artistic abilities, the first-graders drew illustrations to go along with their writing topic. Students colorfully decorated “I Am a Star Author” headbands to wear for the celebration.

Each first-grader read their paper to the class then paired up with a second-grade student to share their work in a one-on-one setting.
