Area third graders ‘publish’ a book

A new book was published by an area third grade class.

Third graders at Crucifixion elementary school in La Crescent wrote and published a book called ‘Third Grade Fiction Fun.’

Their teacher says the students are very creative storytellers and she wanted to take their writing to the next level by collecting and publishing a book of their stories.

The school ordered a book publishing kit and structured an assignment around the book.

On Friday afternoon, the class held a release party for the book.

Their teacher says it gave the students some important life experience.
