Kindergarten Authors

Last week I announced to my students that they were going to be published authors and illustrators.  It is always so great to see the spark in their eye when this time of year comes around.  My reluctant writers suddenly open up and begin feverishly writing away.  Today I handed out several students' typed up stories for them to illustrate.  They were so excited to get started on their pictures!  I can't wait to send their "published" books homes for them to share with their families.


  1. How exciting for you and the kids!

  2. I remember doing that some moons ago! So exciting to be "published." I remember I was helping illustrate my friends book and we had an argument over stick people needed feet or not. Oh the little things...

  3. It's always great when there is an energy for writing. :)

  4. This sounds like a wonderful activity. I love seeing kinder kids get so excited.
