From Around the Region: McGraw Second-graders Become Published Authors

     young author at work
McGraw second graders in Mrs. Rolewicz’s classroom know what it takes to become published authors! 

Together - with the help of their teachers - students created a story that officially turned into a published book. Students collaborated and worked together right down to the smallest details. First, they brainstormed ideas and came up with a topic and theme for their story. Then, they developed characters, a setting, a problem, and a solution that shaped their one-of-a-kind story. 

This story was very important to them, as it is based around bullying awareness. The story takes place in a candy land world full of delicious characters that work together to stand up for one another against bullying. The students researched bullying to gain knowledge and develop a creative and appealing piece of literature that could reach many of their fellow peers.
