Landing Students Share Writing With Peers

Landing Students Share Writing With Peers photo thumbnail118897
Fourth and fifth graders in Mrs. Mendrino’s and Ms. Harechmak’s classes at Landing School met to share their informational writing, as part of the Readers and Writers Workshop program. 

Fourth graders shared their finished projects on the American Revolution and then listened to the fifth graders present their e-books on westward expansion, which they created using Book Creator. All of the students were genuinely interested and focused on the presenter and showed tremendous respect for each other. In attendance during the writing share were Ms. Alexa Doeschner, interim principal of Landing, and Ms. Thomas, security personnel at Landing. Collaboration such as this is rewarding for all of the students because they can take pride in their work, while reinforcing the information they have learned.
