Gillispie “Gem” of the Week

The Book Club Project: Students in Preschool Room 4 recently have shown an interest in writing their own picture books and retelling their stories to the class. As teachers, we have made time, space, and materials available so that the children can do what writers and illustrators do–make books that interest them. We encourage our young writers with support that matches the seriousness of their intent–being four years old and being a writer are not mutually exclusive ways. Above, Alex W. shares the book he authored during circle time. Our students have been sitting attentively for almost 30 minutes at a time to listen to the books as presented by their peers, and we are inspired by the power of the writing and ideas.
