Third-grade students at West Elementary School were celebrated by teachers and parents after creating books for a “Meet the Author” publishing celebration, part of the school’s partnership with the Teachers College Writers’ Workshop.

The students went through an entire writing process that began in November where they brainstormed ideas, drafted, edited, and revised their books.

In addition to presenting their books, students used objects that relate to their stories as a form of advertising their work. Students wore softball and hockey gear, Minecraft clothing, and other items to display their book topics.

“Over a month of work was put into this,” said Principal Amy Dirolf. “We invited parents in to be able to enjoy the books and to learn about the facts that the students gathered about their chosen topic.”
