Young Authors: Students' Young Author books are usually sent home with parent at the Spring report card pickup. Books should be recopied and bound at home. Below are some links with some ideas if you have never done this before. You may help students type their work and they may redraw or copy the pictures but please do not change their story. I will need the original copy back to put in their folder for next year. Students will eventually get to keep their final bound copy. Please send both back for the Young Author Celebration in May or sooner if possible so we can celebrate them in our classroom. We usually have a school wide Young Author celebration on a spring evening where students read excepts and all books are displayed.
