Professional content writers

Becki Carey’s 2nd-grade class at Franklin Elementary in Eveleth spent some time this spring practicing their creative writing. We are pleased to share the imaginative stories these budding writers came up with—from showers of jelly beans to unicorns that somehow stumbled into a deep hole.

Mrs. Carey said, “In second grade, we learn about all types of writing. In April, my class worked on some creative writing. It was right before our spring break so there are many stories that include jellybeans! It is so exciting to watch students learn and grow as writers from the start of the school year until the end!”
