A World of Words

Write a fairy tale in 100 words.  Read and discuss opening passages of several of America’s best-loved children’s classics. Use touch, smell, hearing, and taste as inspiration to reach beyond the obvious in creating a descriptive paragraph.  Write or read anything you enjoy!

Such were the daily activities recently as Emerson’s 7th graders took a week to explore the joy of reading and writing.  No grades, no judgements, just word interaction in creative, fun ways.  Hats off to teacher, Carol Kelly, for these five unique days of exploration and expression.

What was the final word on the week?  Reading is everywhere – enjoy it wherever you find it!  There’s a wide world of reading and writing out there – explore your choices!
