Third graders invent own holidays
The 3rd graders in Mrs. Zennerís class had a writing assignment where they had to create their own holiday.  The students needed to give the reason for the holiday, the date for celebrating it, as well as writing about any special activities during the celebration. Everyone drew illustrations for their new holiday celebration.  Here are the holidays they created:
