EDISON, NJ -- After writing their own personal narratives and adding illustrations, W+H first graders shared their literary works at a Publishing Party on Jan. 31 in the Lower Snowdon library. The young authors navigated the entire writing process during which they learned how to write a lead sentence, use time cue words, revise, edit, and publish their pieces.

They also read their fellow authors' books and created a short book review, which was videotaped and presented to the parents as the introduction to the program. All students read their books to groups of first grade parents and enjoyed themed treats at a reception afterward.
