Part of the joy of publishing writing is sharing it with others, as seen in a buddy share activity between students in Fran Bauer’s and Christine Wuchte’s kindergarten classes at Reinhard.

The assignment was a label writing activity in which each student created a book, noting what he or she was thankful for. The students created detailed pictures to accompany their writing and labeled each artistic description (i.e., family, parents, toys).

After their books were published, the students rotated throughout the room, sharing their books with peers and making the assignment all the more special.
