Mrs. Holly Johnson’s 6th grade Quest classes enjoyed the day being able to meet and visit with authors and illustrators from around the area. This event entitled, “Young Author’s Celebration” was put on by William Carey University, and each student experienced how to be their “Life’s Own Author.”
Prior to the trip, the Quest students spent several weeks writing their own stories that were special to them. We went through the whole writing process and published each student’s book. This was a wonderful experience and gave each student the confidence they needed to realize they can use their personal experiences to connect with others through stories.
We had a great time and look forward to sharing our stories with students at Poplarville Lower Elementary for Read Across America Week.
