Shady Grove students are published authors

Some first graders at Shady Grove Elementary can now call themselves published authors.

Students worked several weeks to publish their written work. Ashley Hughes, Chelsea Whitaker and Katie Ward’s classes went through the writing process which included completing rough drafts and illustrations to make their published books a success.

The theme of the books was inspired from postcards that each class has been collecting from around the world. Each student was assigned a state where they had to research specific facts along with providing fun facts. After weeks of anticipation,  the books came back and author’s faces said it all.
