Upper Primary Students Publish Books

May 12, 2022

Second and third grade readers in Mr. Rudd's IRLA group spent this semester learning all about the magic of storytelling. They read two Magic Tree House books: Dinosaurs Before Dark and The Knight at Dawn. They also read a ton of informational texts to build their background knowledge about dinosaurs and the Middle Ages. Students finished the semester by writing their own version of a Magic Tree House story. They created artwork, wrote a synopsis, and then created an informational poster to teach readers about their subject. All of their work was produced online, using Google Sites, Docs, Slides, Drawings, and Canva. Check out their awesome work!
