Stuart Elementary has announced that 15 of its students have become published authors through a national student publishing program. As part of the publishing process, students in first grade planned, wrote and illustrated their own book using a free publishing kit provided by Studentreasures Publishing. The title of their book, “Did You Know?” contains amazing facts about a variety of animals.
The students in Crystal Lawson’s class have been working hard on their books for four weeks. The idea for their book began after students started watching National Geographic videos during their daily snack time. Students became intrigued and wanted to learn more. Lawson said, “I am so proud of their hard work on this project. I hope this is an experience they will always remember and cherish forever.”
The Studentreasures Publishing program provides teachers an easy way to incorporate any lesson plan – from math and science to history, art, and more – into a fun and memorable activity. Publishing a book in the classroom engages students through hands-on learning and inspires a love of reading and writing.
The best part of this activity is seeing a classroom full of proud, smiling young authors, with a memory that lasts a lifetime, plus, a full-color, deluxe hardcover book for the teacher or school library. The students’ parents also have an option to purchase copies of these unique, childhood keepsakes.
