First-grade student authors and illustrators from Julie Celecia’s class at Waverly Avenue Elementary School showed off their most recent work during a display showcase for family and friends.  

As part of a classroom unit exploring nonfiction writing, students wrote and illustrated a step-by-step book on how to accomplish a task. During the activity, students practiced arranging steps in sequential order, brainstorming, and editing independently and with a partner. 

Among the topics covered by the students were how to change a car battery, how to make an ice cream cone, how to make slime, how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and how to make a pizza, along with multiple others.
