I had the distinct pleasure of getting to visit a publishing party today in our fourth grade. Today was also one of our delayed start morning where the educators in the building took time to discuss celebrations and publication in a writer’s workshop model…so everything seems to be connecting like crazy! I was struck by the sheer excitement and genuine appreciation the students had about the chance to share their work with an audience. This was a big part of our discussion in the morning and here it was showing it’s smiling fourth grade face at me this afternoon. It was such a great thing.
