it just happens

on May 5, 2011

Today was the day.

Today was the first day a few of my students became authors of books.  It happened in such a natural way, without any real prompting.  One minute they are drawing pictures and the next minute they asked to staple the pictures together in book form.  They called them books, they read them like books and so I helped them title their works and sign the front as “authors.”

One book about cars and two books about fruit.  It happened so fast I didn’t even get pictures.

The real magic will happen tomorrow when a few more students will decide they want to create books too.

    Poof! I love it. And that is why I like the younger grades. Things happen for the first time for all of them, and they happen so quickly, unexpectedly and sweetly! So excited for your little ones! They must be so proud, and rightly so.
