The results are in! On May 31 and June 18, I wrote blog posts about a project that teacher Kristen Nordstrom and I did to see if 1st graders could integrate engaging narrative nonfiction elements into their reports on African Animals. Take a look at this short video, and you’ll get a taste of what they produced. And note that the filming/editing and directing of this clip was done by two 4th graders. Creative kids all around!
Alexis loves to play with words and find out more about how the world works. The result so far? Picture books for kids and nonfiction articles in kids' magazines. And she's working on many more writing projects, too!
