Thomas Paine students loves authors!
During the University of Illinois sponsored Youth Festival, Thomas Paine students and staff welcomed two marvelous writers to our school, Barb Rosenstock and Keiko Kasza.
Ms. Rosenstock and Ms. Kasza spoke to the students about the ins and out of being an author and explained what inspires them. Students also created and participated in special classroom projects to honor the authors’ work and even had the opportunity to ask the authors questions about their lives! It was a great opportunity for students to see how their daily practice with writing can really pay off. We cannot wait to see which of our students will be the next best-selling author!
