Fourth grade students listen to authorMs. Augelli, Ms. Wishnia and Ms. Wihry’s Fourth Grade students celebrated the National Day on Writing by participating in a live Google Author’s Hangout with noted author Kate Messner on Tuesday, Oct. 20.

Ms. Messner took students on an inspirational journey through the process of writing a book. Our students learned that published authors go through the same process as student writers, including pre-writing, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing.

She showed the classes her planning pages and drafts with revisions and editing marks on them, and even mentioned her writer’s notebook.
