Ms. Herbert's 5th grade English classes hosted an Author's Tea. Students were given the assignment to write a story that included one common idea - a mysterious door. Students could work individually or with a partner. The stories went through a rigorous revision process. Illustrations accompanied each story.
All the stories were professionally bound into a "team" book. (Students are put into teams...this is the white team) Students invited family members or special guests to attend today's Author's Tea. Students read their stories to guests. What a tremendous accomplishment!
