Good morning. I haven’t posted much writing from my young authors this summer, as we have been heads-down working on the Summer Reading Challenge and discovering literary elements through the close reading of fiction.
However, this piece by Grade 6 young author Bonnie Xu needed to be shared with the world.
In class this week, I asked her to write a story about being someone’s shadow. Her take on it gave us a startling and moving peek into the shadow world.
English is Bonnie’s second language, yet her ability to transform ideas into provocative stories blossoms with every assignment.
