On Wednesday, January 25th, Mrs. D’Alessandro’s fourth grade class at Wakelee Elementary School visited the Wolcott Senior Center for a publishing party. The class had visited the center two weeks earlier to interview the seniors about a life changing event from their childhood. The students then wrote books based on those interviews. At the publishing party, the students returned to share their completed books with the people who had inspired their work. The When I Was a Kid project was the culminating activity for the class’ language arts unit.
