Northport K-8 School is kicking off Young Author season this year in a big way! Each year, the Northport K-8 media center is decorated to showcase the terrific Young Author books at the school. This year, the theme is “Take Me Out To The Ballgame!” Teachers selected a table or counter space and decorated with items that incorporate the theme. Tables this year are decorated with themes of the Miami Heat from Juliette Thelusma’s fourth grade class, Chicago Cubs from Jennifer Gomez’s fourth class, kindergarten has a Mets theme and many, many other teams and sports are represented as a backdrop for the Young Author books. Students and parents have toured the school’s media center to read each others’ books. Planning, writing, revising, editing, illustrating and the complete writing process are showcased in a community wide project that address the anchor standards for writing across the curriculum in a fun and pride filled arena. The students love the project and like to promote their own books to others! Pictured are third graders in John Fallon’s class promoting their book table.
