Students in the East Cheatham Elementary School Diverse Learners classroom have become published authors through a national student publishing program.
As part of the publishing process, the students planned, wrote and illustrated their own story using a free publishing kit provided by Studentreasures Publishing.
The topic of their books was Super Heroes.
The students in Kellie Piche’s class have been working hard on their books for four weeks.
“The idea for their super hero book started when we brainstormed different topics and the class voted on super heroes. The students’ creativity and the smiles on their faces were beaming with pride. It brought tears to my eyes," Piche said.
The Studentreasures publishing program provides teachers an easy way to incorporate any lesson plan – from math and science to history, art, and more – into a fun and memorable activity.
Publishing a book in the classroom engages students through hands-on learning and inspires a love of reading and writing.
The best part? A classroom full of proud, smiling young authors, with a memory that lasts a lifetime, plus, a full-color, deluxe hardcover book for the teacher or school library. The students’ parents also have an option to purchase copies of these unique, childhood keepsakes.
