Digital Stories-If I Were an Author....

I am a big fan of giving students different ways to apply what they are learning. We talk about what an author is the first day of school. We do author studies and I love to see them come back from the library and say "look Ms. Trayers-it's an Eric Carle book!"--because we did an author study on him. I call them authors in our writing workshop, they sit in our Author's Chair to share their work.

Can you tell that they know what an author does? :)
