Students were tasked with creating likable, colorful characters, a setting, a simple and easily resolved conflict, and a moral or lesson that a child could understand.
They created covers and dedication pages, stapled them together and presented them at a recent meeting.
Dressed in holiday attire, club members shared their books with the children in the HMS daycare on Thursday, Dec. 15.
Later in the afternoon, the students enjoyed a holiday party by watching a holiday movie, enjoying snacks and experimenting with holiday-themed stream of consciousness writing.
Club sponsor Lindsay Sproles said, “I am really proud of these students. They wanted to do something to give back to the community during the holiday season and reading to the daycare kids was all their idea. We have a great group this year. They are full of heart and talent.”
Projects on the horizon for next semester include making a poetry portfolio, writing a one-act play and putting together the HMS literary magazine, Âmes Sauvages.
