MVES SECOND GRADERS WRITE AND PUBLISH THEIR FIRST BOOK

Posted June 19 at 2:37pm

Some people spend a lifetime planning to write a book, someday. But a group of second graders at MV Elementary couldn’t wait to get started.

 

Their teachers, Mrs. Mankoo and Mrs. Padavano, collaborated to develop an informational text writing unit. The students began by researching and becoming experts on a topic of their choice, consulting the Britannica site through Orange-Ulster BOCES.

 

Armed with their new, specialized knowledge, the students developed a rough draft, created T-charts to examine pros and cons, identified logical relations with Venn diagrams, used flow charts, parallel illustrations and other graphic organizers, edited their text, and published their first book—complete with a table of contents and vocabulary.
