Young Novelists Finish Books
Posted on 12/05/2016
NaNoWriMo is part of the Young Writer’s Program to help students write a small novel. Ms. Sanders, the sixth grade ELA teacher, has been working with students since November 1st. Three students- Alex Eaves, Lydia Simmons, and Ericka Hernandez- were part of the class working on the novel.They had to learn about story elements before they could start writing their story. At times it was very hard for them, but they were excited to finish the writings. Each kid had to pick a topic for his/her story, decide on the plot and sequence of events, and then write at least 500 words a day. Alex’s story was about a kid with down syndrome, Lydia’s novel was a murder mystery,and Erika wrote about a missing person. They had to present their story to their classmates on the last day during a “Book Talk”. Students can also publish their book through Amazon or other publishers if they choose.
