Like adults, young people have very creative minds. It is estimated that approximately 1% of the population has written a book, so this is a significant accomplishment for these students. Especially because many schools are not able to do projects that challenge young kids to use their imagination to create amazing things on this scale. International Montessori School – Auburn aspires to guide the next generation of thinkers that will shape the future of the world.
The Wonder of My World a Young Poet’s Project is an idea created to help discover writing talents among young school kids. There are 47 child authors from 3-14 who took part in the project. The 3-6-year-olds created a joint poem based on their outdoor exploration of Fall. Then, they shared their insights in a classroom exercise and their exact words were recorded and then converted into a poem. The elementary and junior high students spent months writing poetry.
Also, an editor/compiler and parent worked on the project for months to make it a reality. The compiler, Latonya Dennis, consulted with the school and spent months teaching them about publishing and the business of marketing a book. Once the book was ready they released it as a 100 page 8×10 paperback book in 6 weeks. The school is the publisher on record.
The book is excellent material for kids as they will find so much in it that will inspire them. Kids will easily be able to relate with the book as it is written by them, from a familiar perspective. It will also inspire them to try their hands in creative writing and building their own capacity.
