Fifth Grade Students Write to Author Cynthia DeFelice
In ELA fifth grade students read Cynthia DeFelice’s book Weasel. This was the first novel the students read this year. Each day the students came to class enthusiastic about reading the book anticipating what was going to happen next. The students enjoyed the book so much they wanted to write the author to let her know and ask her questions about writing the book. Each student wrote Cynthia a letter and enclosed a picture of themselves reading Weasel.
On October 27th Mrs. Pierce’s fifth grade ELA received a letter from Cynthia DeFelice. She answered many of the questions the students asked her and expressed her enjoyment of hearing from them. Hearing from the author has ignited the students love for reading and writing.
