Gracee--Gold Star Young Author

Some months back, I shared some of my granddaughter's writing tips. She revised her work at school. I thought you might like to see the final product--in her own words with phonetic spelling. 


Coming up: A one-word/one-line interview with this young author. 

P.S. Gracee's mom did have an infection in an ear, and her ear did "swallow" an earring back, but her ear lobe is still intact! And her birthday is in October. She just liked turquoise better!

Note: The Christine Wonch Creative Writing Award program was formed to honor a young girl who was killed in a car-pedestrian accident. The program is in its 20th year and provides an opportunity for area students to have their best work evaluated. They begin working on their stories in the fall.

  3. Congrats, Gracee! She did a great job holding this reader's attention. :)

  4. Congratulations Gracee. You did a great job!

    PS to Sandra: I'm glad Gracee explained "terckoys" is the December birth stone, because I wouldn't have figured that one out. ;)

  5. Oh, and looking forward to the interview. :)

  6. wonder if there is an online Archive of the stories, in 3rd grade I believe my story won.
