Ms. Miller’s 1st graders brought their classroom to Loveland Magazine to teach us how they wrote about two of their exceptional teachers
On May 16, Ms. Miller brought her 1st-grade class on a field trip to the Loveland Magazine offices to teach the staff how they have learned to write stories. They spent countless classroom hours writing about two special teachers in their classroom, Owen, and Sue Wilhoite. Owen is an “Ambassador” from Loveland High School and Sue is a Special Education Professional – mother and son. When they arrived at Loveland Magazine they showed the story they wrote, which they emailed the day before, and taught about the Expanding Expression method of writing stories. Loveland Magazine writer and photographer, Sam Smith was there to learn as well. He took photos and explained the process of getting photos into a finished story. The 1st graders then viewed their almost finished story and saw the process Loveland Magazine uses to publish to the Internet. After lunch, on the back lawn, they were off to the Loveland Dairy Whip down the street. On Wednesday, Publisher, David Miller went to their classroom where Devin was chosen by the students to be the one to hit the “Publish” button. Their story about Owen and Sue Wilhoite is below.
