Northport K-8 kindergartners in Megan Castiglia’s class showed off their writing skills to parents and grandparents at a Young Authors mini program recently. Students in Mrs. Castiglia’s class, affectionately known as Mrs. M.C.’s Little Hammers, wrote Young Author books following the school-wide rubric. They also made a main character poster following in the footsteps of Dr. Seuss. As students read their books aloud, parents moved to visit each student and hear the stories read aloud by the students. Also on hand to listen to the students work were principal Glenn Rustay, assistant principal Bennie Montenegro, media specialist Lynne Gruszka, media clerk Pam Crum and a variety of older students. Kindergartners showed off sentence structure, good conventions and a nicely focused story.
