HS & Lincoln: Writing Buddies Print

High school students in CREATIVE WRITING & ADVANCED CREATIVE WRITING classes worked with four of the 3rd grade classrooms as "writing buddies" this term. High school students worked with their third-grade "buddies" to encourage them to use more imagery, to bring in all five senses into their writing and to choose precise vocabulary. Third-graders created several poems and drawings in the three days of work. The high school students are currently creating "Writing Buddy Books" for their third-graders, typing & finding illustrations for the work, then compiling it into a collection to give to third-graders as a keepsake. It was a great experience for everyone!
