Ms. Mayorga’s EL students at Southport Middle School have been studying elements of plot and used this information to write and illustrate original Holiday children’s books. Students took their finished product to Clinton Young Elementary Wednesday and read their stories to a 1st grade classroom. These stories focused on students’ writing and speaking skills as they are learning a new language. The activity was also a positive way for SMS to partner with our neighboring elementary school. Student success is a team effort.
