Once I filled out the form online, Scholastic sent me all of the materials that I needed for this to happen. About a week later, the box arrived.
Creating the Book
First, the class had to decide what the topic would be since it was a book they would be writing together with the intention of leaving one copy in the classroom for future students. They decided it should be all about 5th grade at Friends School.
Each student wrote a page either about a favorite thing they did this year or advice for a future fifth grader. Next, they wrote their draft, revised and edited. When they published, they also included an illustration.
After everyone was finished, I collected all of their work, put it in the envelope and attached the shipping label, all of which Scholastic provided.
A few weeks later, the package arrived! Since most of my students ordered their own copy, this will be a really awesome "Fifth Grade Memorabilia" type of thing for them.
I'm not gonna lie, this page is pretty cool!
Favorite part of the school year
