EDISON — Students at the Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison have been taking part in a variety of activities.
First graders read many different versions of Cinderella including stories from around the world. Once they heard all of these tales, they were eager to write their own version of the story. They went through the entire writing process, working to include magic elements, good and evil, morals and figurative language. The first grade teachers typed up the stories and the students added colorful illustrations. Finally, the books were bound into cardboard castle covers. To celebrate their big accomplishment, the first grade classes of Jennifer Molloy and Joanne Jacobson held a Publishing Ball. The children dressed in fairy tale clothing and enthusiastically shared their fairy tales with their royal audience.
