Students interview each other during the first week of school then, write a paragraph about their new friend.
For over three decades, Terri Moore has experienced the evolution of education in elementary grades as a classroom teacher. One aspect of the curriculum that she noticed has evolved is the need to embed stress management skills at an earlier age in the education of youngsters. Teaching writing is a personal joy of hers. For the past fifteen years, she has used a writing workshop format in her classroom that teaches the students how to draft, revise, edit, and publish in a variety of ways. Her classes culminate their writing efforts with an end-of-the-year Young Authors' Picnic with other student authors and families in their school community. This is not her first time using Bookemon as a publishing tool for her students.
