Writing and publishing our first books!

This week was a big week for our kindergarten writers -- they published their first books! We have been working for the last several weeks on writing stories about our lives. For most kids, this is the first time they have been very deliberate about planning, illustrating, and writing a story. Many kids are developmentally ready to begin writing letters and sounds to approximate what they want their pages to say, but up to this point have only been using pictures to convey their thoughts. So it's very exciting to plan and write a whole book!

Here are some pictures of the authors hard at work on their stories:

And here are their finished books!

They read them to their partners with pride:

And then we got to have a little dance party to celebrate all our hard work :)

Great job kindergarten writers!
