We've been talking about how writers use words to create pictures in the minds of readers. Without adjectives and adverbs (a.k.a. describing words), the Awesome Authors could not have described the marvelous monsters they created, using the Kid Pix Deluxe program. You can find these monsters on the authors' individual pages!

Poetry is a wonderful way for kids to express themselves, and to feel successful with writing. With their exuberant nature, young children seem to bubble with poetry! Often, when the conventions (rules) of writing are relaxed a bit, even the most timid writer’s voice shines through.

This week, we spent time reading poetry that was written by other children. We learned about free verse poetry and cinquain form poems. The kids wrote poems about themselves, using the cinquain form as a guide, and free verse poems with illustrations. You can find these poems on the Awesome Authors’ individual blog pages. Please continue to check your favorite author's page for more fantastic poetry!

I am thrilled to announce that, "the writers of summer" are back! This year, our Awesome Authors class includes fifteen enthusiastic writers, who are excited to share their work here.

We spent our first day together making special writers' notebooks and establishing our individual blog pages. We're looking forward to a visit to the offices of The Grand Forks Herald, on Wednesday. Please visit the blog pages of the 2015 Awesome Authors often throughout the next four weeks!
