Villa Madonna Academy's fifth grade was fortunate this week to host some incredible authors. Neil Gaiman, Tim Green, Sharon Creech, and Gary Paulson are just of few of the authors who "stopped by" as part of Mrs. Lynch's author study project. This is no ordinary project. The students are challenged to research and present details on their author's life and literature as the author himself. Whether through wigs, hats, costumes, or accents, the students become their authors.

The project promotes research and writing skills, public speaking, and critical thinking. Villa's students are encouraged to explore learning through hands on experiences such as this one. To learn more about the work going on in Villa's classrooms, please contact Admissions Director Janet Baugh at 859-331-6333 ext. 139.
