Writers, writers, everywhere!

Last week Division 10 invited me to their first author’s circle.  Students in Ms. Shuster’s class have been very excited about writing and have been publishing their books using the ipads.  They have also been donating their books to the library and inspired me to create  a new display of student writing.  After seeing the display, many classes have offered to share their writing too.  I can’t wait to see what they’ve written.

Along with student books, we also have some new books in the library that I think will inspire any writer.

This wonderful story by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld is about an exclamation mark struggling to fit in. Read it and learn just how important, and funny, punctuation can be.

Have you ever had writer’s block? Well, then you’ll love Abby Hanlon’s new book about Ralph; a struggling young writer who can’t think of anything to write.  His teacher tells him “stories are everywhere” and Ralph looks for them, even on the floor.  After reading this book to a few classes, I would recommend it to writers and aspiring writers of all ages.

Come check out the student display and these new books now!
