AJS 3rd Graders Publish Their 'Superheroes' Book
Some of Lake Shore’s youngest writers and illustrators have published their first book, “Superheroes,” via the Studenttreasures Publishing program.
The 13 3rd graders (one writer moved away) conducted readings and book signings at a red carpet book launch in Izabella Ventresca’s classroom at A.J. Schmidt Elementary School.
The students each wrote a page about a superhero, such as Spider-Man or Aquaman, and then a second page about a personal superhero, such as Mom or Dad.
The students used Chromebooks to research and help draw, then transferred the research to their final copy.
“I saw this book as a perfect opportunity to motivate my students,” says Mrs. Ventresca. “Every day they asked if we would work on writing our book. It took us roughly three months to finish. My students put in a lot of hard work, time, and dedication!”
