For the Grade 3 “How We Express Ourselves’ unit, Jennifer Ribachonek, our Learning Specialist, and Randa Bakkar, a grade 3 teacher, coordinated to use Storybird; an internet-based community, dedicated to the art of writing.

IMG_1111Using the writing process, students in grade three planned and wrote traditional stories; applying the literary elements such as plot and theme. Students also created archetypal characters and some stories included a moral or a lesson. Storybird helped students to chose pre-created images to illustrate their fables, stories, legends, myths, and fairy tales.

Stories will be on display in front of the Marmara library. Please take a moment to read some of these imaginative tales and be sure to congratulate the authors on their amazing work!
