Photo-story: First grade hosts Author Party

On Thursday, May 12, Bluffton Elementary School first graders invited their families to an Author Party in the middle school cafetorium. The room was abuzz with activity, with the students presenting their writing and illustrations in small group circles.

Each student took a turn in the author's chair while other students and family members looked on. They shared an autobiography or an animal book that they had created. The event was organized like a conference with presentation groups numbered and authors listed on signs.

After the presentations, families enjoyed refreshments and talked with their students individually about the experience.
