Flying High in Writing

Principal Laurie Fahey, Jacey Cripps (Grade 5), Teacher Tamara Hutchins

Principal Laurie Fahey, Jacey Cripps (Grade 5), Teacher Tamara Hutchins 

We are excited to acknowledge the creative writing talents of Englesby Elementary School fifth grade student Jacey Cripps. Jacey enhanced her skills in writing recently through the narrative craft unit of study through the Lucy Calkins units of study. This talented young writer learned the importance of dramatizing a scene to capture the unfolding experience on the page. Inspired and emulating the craft moves of award winning author Chris Van Allsburg, Jacey wrote this remarkable, fictional narrative entitled, “Isabelle, James and the Fireflies”. Jacey’s work now serves as a mentor text for her peers.
Congratulations Jacey!
