Pine Glen's Newest Authors!

This was a very exciting week for Mrs. Lynch's 3rd grade ELA class. They became published authors in the Pine Glen Library!

The students read several variations of the classic The Three Little Pigs with Mrs. Lynch over the last several weeks. Then it was their turn to write their own version of the story.  Mrs. Ardizzoni then showed the class how to make their stories come to life using the Book Creator app, and the students wrote and illustrated their books.

Once Mrs. Lynch published the books, it was time to head down to the library, where Miss Carney explained how a book is cataloged into the library system, where there will be located in the library, and read the stories to the class. The books were great, and the students really enjoyed hearing one another's stories. Like all published authors, the students signed their first edition books! Now they will be cataloged into the system and available for circulation in the Pine Glen library.

Congratulations on a job well done! Be sure to check out these great books from our library!
