A literary week at Alki Elementary – not only did one of their Global Reading Challenge teams come home from the citywide final with medals (as reported here), but Thursday was Young Authors Day. Teacher Anna Coghill shares photos and this report:
(Thursday) Alki Elementary celebrated student writing with a Young Authors Day. The day included visiting author Paul Owen Lewis. Mr. Lewis started the day off with an assembly about his personal experience with writing. Later he met with smaller groups to continue the conversation.
Students celebrated their own writing by sharing in groups throughout the school day. It was a wonderful way to recognize the hard work students have done this year.
