Grade 5 Enrichment - Author Gregory Mone
Tuesday, November 1, 2016
On Tuesday, November 1st the Pine Hill 5th Grade Classes participated in an in-house author workshop with children’s author and science journalist, Gregory Mone.
Greg met with all fifth graders in the auditorium where he shared books he has written and co-written with other authors. He spoke about his writing process and what works best for him, like making a plan, researching, becoming an expert, and revising - a lot! The kids asked great questions and were extremely engaged during the 45 minute presentation.
Greg then went to each classroom for a workshop on editing and revising. Each classroom worked with Greg to revise a story that he had written when he was in sixth grade!
The kids had a lot of fun working together with Greg to make the story better and more interesting.
They learned how to think like a writer!
