Oct. 17, 2012, was an exciting day for the fourth grade students at Morgan Elementary School. Students had just put the final touches on their published drafts after completing a unit on “Writing a Personal Narrative.”
To celebrate their learning and to see how it applies in the real world they enjoyed a visit from noted author, Jennifer Nielsen, who has published several books. She discussed with students the process of writing that they had just been practicing.
Mrs. Nielsen recently moved to Morgan, and it was exciting for students to ask questions and hear from a writer that lives in the community. Students were quick to ask the favorite book of those she has written.
Look at your local library to find The False Prince. Of course it won’t be available until all of the excited fourth graders have finished reading it.
