What is important is to keep learning, to enjoy challenge, and to tolerate ambiguity. In the end there are no certain answers.

Calling all artists and authors! Create a fictional story that is developed, illustrated, and bound by you! In this jam-packed week you will produce your own picture books and learn creative writing strategies. Write, revise and edit your own creative fiction story using strong leads, descriptive language, and powerful narrative suspense, with endings that will leave your audience wanting more books by you! We will be using mentor texts by famous picture book authors to learn different writing strategies and techniques. Once we have our stories written, we will use different mediums in art (i.e. acrylic paint, water colors, markers, colored pencils, etc.) to illustrate our stories. Students will learn which scenes in their stories are most important, and which can be heightened by an illustration. Danielle Griffith is a fourth grade teacher at the Harrington School.
