Sunrise Academy upper elementary students become published authors, writing and illustrating their own books through a national student publishing program, Studentreasures Publishing.
Sunrise Academy has announced that over sixty of its students have become published authors through a national student publishing program. As part of the publishing process, students in grades 3rd-5th planned, wrote, and illustrated their own books using a free publishing kit provided by Studentreasures Publishing. The topic of their books was Holiday Memories.
The students of Bethany Green’s writing class have been working hard on their books for several weeks. The idea for their class book started when they decided they wanted to share their favorite holiday memories with their families. “These kids worked incredibly hard and poured every effort they had into their stories. We are so proud of them, remarks Bethany Green.
The Studentreasures publishing program provides teachers an easy way to incorporate any lesson plan – from math and science to history, art, and more – into a fun and memorable activity. Publishing a book in the classroom engages students through hands-on learning and inspires a love of reading and writing.
The best part? A classroom full of proud, smiling young authors, with a memory that lasts a lifetime, plus, a full-color, deluxe hardcover book for the teacher or school library. The students’ parents also have an option to purchase copies of these unique, childhood keepsakes.
Sunrise Academy rolled out the red carpet for our student authors as the students celebrated their accomplishment, viewed their published books, and entertained the audience with a reading from the authors work during their publishing party. The publishing party was visited by a reporter for The West Volusia Beacon newspaper and the students are excited to be recognized in an upcoming December 2021 issue of the newspaper.
