Ms. Thomas’s 3rd grade class had the best experience with writing! We had a real author, Keri Measom-Francis, come visit us and share with us her love of writing. She introduced us to “Creative Notebooks”, which we all made. She then encouraged us to write, write, write! (A few students were so excited about these books that they made another one to use at home!)

A few months later, Keri visited our class again to share with us something that she wrote-her newly published children’s book, “Christmas Underwear”. We loved what we learned about writing-that you can create amazing stories from your own life experiences.
