Writing a Classroom Story

New Review

Remember a special event with a book written by the class. As a whole, scholars discuss a field trip, visitor, or assembly recounting events that stand out in their memory. While you record learners' input, participants practice their printing skills as they write on blank pages. Pages are illustrated and read-aloud to assess finished products.
