Students holding up books.

Students in Tracy Feeney’s Grade 1 class at Marlboro Elementary School got to experience the excitement and satisfaction of becoming published authors, thanks to a free publishing kit from Studenttreasures Publishing. The kit—which Feeney originally ordered back in 2020 but never got the chance to use—included sample pages, a step-by-step teacher guide, and order forms which gave families the option to purchase copies of the published book. After choosing “Family” as their story topic, each student got creative writing and illustrating their own pages. The class spent several weeks perfecting their rough drafts before a final version was ready to be sent to the company for printing. The students could hardly contain their excitement when they received copies of their book in the mail earlier this month!
