Wordless Wednesday ...

This morning Autumn's class held a "Publishing Party". Each child took a turn sitting in a chair at the front of the room to read out loud their final story of the year, which was turned into an actual book. The words are typed, and then the pictures are drawn by the kids.  Then of course their are yummy snacks after :)

 I'm so proud of Autumn who is quiet at school, but was brave enough to read her story, which was appropriately titled "Chickens".


Now it's time to show me what got!! 
Join the fun and add your WW link below!

So cute!! What a great job she did, especially if she's usually quiet :) Such a great idea for the books too!

Beth said...

What a great idea. I am sure the kids all loved it.
The picture is precious!

Thank you!!! I would have NEVER been brave enough to do that, especially at 8!

Congrats to her! What a special accomplishment!

Reminds me of when I got my first story published. Way To Go!

What a pretty little girl she is and so brave. I'm a retired teacher and the number one fear of 99 percent of kids (and adults) is public speaking.

Lovely picture of Autumn! She looked so confident!

Theresa said...

Good for her! I suck at public speaking, so I am happy that she was brave enough to get up there and show her lovely story!

Wayne W Smith said...

She is adorable. Well done being brave enough to stand up and be heard.

Meryl said...

Good for her!!! I was quiet in school too and know how difficult that must have been.

Joyce Lansky said...

That's a wonderful project. I'm glad she had a good experience with it.

Such lovely comments, thank you all! I had to take a public speaking class in college and was AWFUL!!!!!

Also, I remember my "published" book in elementary school was made from cardboard covered in wallpaper lol.

Dave Keller said...

That is so cool! You have reason to be very proud of her! Congrats to you both!

Paula J said...

Thanks Dave :))

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

I love that photo!!! I can see why you are proud! That is AWESOME!!!!!

Diana M. said...

Way to go Autumn! I'm curious. How is the book bound? It looks like it has a hardcover.

Trisha said...

Cue photo! I'm sure her "published book" was awesome! =D

Karly Gomez said...

She is such a cutie!

Danni Baird @ Silo Hill Farm said...

Bella said...

That's such a big step. Yay!!

my family said...

i cna see my youngest daughter doing this, we got chickens about six weeks ago and she loves them

jMo said...

Great idea, did she write the story too? It's good for kids to speak in front of class no matter how terrifying, I think we all remember that. (:

Jennifer Worrell said...

I love doing this stuff with my students. What a brave girl! You must be proud!

Helen said...

What an excellent idea! Those kids must have been so proud to show off their hard work like that.

Laura Cyra said...

Fun idea! My daughter would love this :)

The BOAT said...

Good job Autumn!! I know it's tough to stand in front of a bunch of people...especially your friends! Love the idea of a publishing party! Thanks for linking up with The BOAT!

Clairejustine said...

Well done,she is so brave lovely :)

Kristin Aquariann said...

Way to go to your cutie! Public speaking makes me sick, but if I have something to read instead of having to wing it, I'm much more confident.

Stacey @ RealWorldMom (Linky) said...

What a wonderful idea! I'm so glad your daughter was able to read her story. Good for her! :)

Shayna said...

You must be so proud!!!!

kristi said...

That's wonderful that Autumn read her book out loud. What an accomplishment...she may be the next great novelist!

Ms. Latina said...

That is so cool that their pieces of writing get turned into actual books!

Kris @ beyond the whiskers said...

Awwww! Maybe if it is ok with the author, you could scan and post a couple pages of her story for next week's WW.

Paula J said...

Thank you so much to all who linked up for WW and/or commented on my photo.

It is very important to be able to build confidence in this way, starting when your young. I think this is a newer thing because many of you mentioned that you didn't do this when you were little, and neither did I.

And maybe I will copy a few pages to post for next weeks WW! Thanks for the idea Kris :))
