Sycamore Writing Celebration

Students and faculty thumbnail246411
Sycamore Avenue Elementary School fifth graders gathered in the school library for a writing celebration with parents and care givers to showcase their research on natural disasters. The students and their teachers worked with library media specialist Christina Ladick to create engaging digital books on their topics.

At the start of the writing unit, the students took a gallery walk throughout images of actual destruction caused by various natural disasters, helping to drive inquiry and interest about topics. Ms. Ladick then reviewed how the students could use the school’s databases, digital articles and books and MyOn to collect information on their chosen topics. Technology integration specialist Victoria Pappas also integrated technology by incorporating a green screen for the students to record public service announcements and weather reports. As part of their writing instruction, the students focused on writing introductions to grab the reader, used transition phrases to assist with wiring flow and developed thoughtful conclusions. They also used templates on Book Creator to organize their writing.
