1st Grade Student Authors are Taking The Writing Process to an Excitng Place

We shared with you the wonderful 1st grade class who we worked with a few weeks ago in one of our Writing Workshops. This class was so excited about the writing process and seeing their work published in an eBook that they wrote another “Katie Adventure”.

The first book in this series, “Katie’s Farm Adventures” was written by our very own Denise Ball, with collaboration from our whole team here at Unlock the Teacher LLC. The paintings were illustrated by Denise’s mom, Mary Sharon who lost her battle with cancer in 2005. This was the first book written in Unlock the Teacher LLC’s Promoting Literacy Campaign…where all proceeds from books go directly to designated elementary schools for promoting literacy programs.

Our Lady Queen of Martyrs School receives all proceeds from this series. OLQM’s 1st grade class wanted to write an adventure about Katie, so we went in and conducted our workshop and the response to their work has been great! The 1st grade teacher, Mrs. McMahon has empowered this group of young writers. The six and seven year olds are excited to brainstorm and write down ideas, collaborate and vote on which ones work and which ones do not and then illustrate the scenes for book. After viewing their work in complete form and having their eBook, “Katie’s Exploring Adventure” published at Barnes and Noble online, they were ready to do the process all over again. 🙂

Given this, we are excited to share that sometime next week, the third book in this series will be available for purchase at Barnes and Noble.com. The book is titled, “Katie’s Horse Adventure” and the story is really quite cute. We will announce here and on our facebook page when it is available for all to see. All proceeds go directly to OLQM’s school…thank you for your support!

May we continue to seek knowledge in all things,

Denise, Trisha and Sue
The Unlock the Teacher LLC Team
