Pasemann students write, illustrate book

TIM CROW [email protected]

Some of the country’s youngest published authors attend Naomi Pasemann Elementary.

Reagan Bryant, a third-grade teacher at NPE, had seen ads from Student Treasures about a free program for teachers to give their students the experience of writing, illustrating and publishing a book. She decided to bring the experience to her students, and the new authors were very pleased with the results.

“I felt like my students needed something fun to help them grow in their writing,” Bryant said. “Sometimes it’s a struggle to get them to write like they need to, but this wasn’t hard. They were excited.”

Bryant said her students wrote two rough drafts and then completed their final draft along with an illustration. The topic was the five senses, and students chose how they wanted to write about the topic.

“I wrote about tacos,” student Nolan Wynn said. “I hear the crunching and the munching, and I like the seasoning. It felt good to see my name in a book.”

The program is free for teachers, and published copies of the book may be purchased.

Mama Duck, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping Taylor Independent School District students, purchased extra copies so that every student was able to receive the book to take home and share with friends and family.

Pasemann teacher, Reagan Bryant, presents Ismael Jonse with his copy of the book he and his classmates published. Students also received certificates for being published authors.
