Today students focused on story writing and developing characters.  Students had an opportunity to ‘interview a character’ by visiting the younger grades.  These interviews served as a brainstorming activity as our young writers worked on developing ideas for a great plot for their own story.  Students also worked in groups to develop a puppet show, using the various elements of a story and then present it to their fellow classmates.  Finally, all students of Guiding Light Academy participated in a “Reading Buddy” session.  Here, the older grades were able to have some quiet reading time with one of the younger students.  The session proved to be a success and we are looking forward to more Reading Buddy opportunities!
