After reading A Mother For Choco, by Keiko Kasza, students wrote paragraphs about what they think the author's message is in this book. Students reflected on the fact that there are many different kinds of families and that what we look like really isn't important. Students also made connections to Alessia Cara's song, "Scars To Your Beautiful". Students shared their writing and gave each other thoughtful feedback. I am so proud of the incredible growth they have made as writers!
