First graders host "author parties"

This week, first graders are presenting books they have written to their classmates and parents. These author parties are a first-grade tradition and are the culminating moment of the Grade 1 writing curriculum. The books, which focus on a topic of interest to each student, include a table of contents, the main story, hand-drawn illustrations, a glossary (if needed), and a brief autobiography at the end.
