Persuasive Writing Shared With Compass Community

Within and outside of our Writing Workshop, Children spent time preparing for this past week's publishing party. In preparation, children put final touches on their persuasive pieces. They also created front and back covers to accompany their work.

On Friday, children shared their pieces with members of the Compass community. We enjoyed light snacks, as children read their work to visitors.
