  • Elk Creek Elementary students share their books with classmates

    The Writer Share Fair at Elk Creek Elementary School is a simple way to teach a variety of things: leadership, inspiration, literacy, storytelling and more.

    The fair takes place twice a year at the school, and fifth-graders take the lead in small groups — each with a student from each grade. The groups are stationed around the school, and each student shares a book he or she has written.

    The leaders ask questions and talk about what they like in the books. When the students are done reading, they get star stickers for doing such a good job.
