West Virginia’s own storyteller extraordinaire, Adam Booth, visited Moorefield Elementary School last week to tell stories, but also to show students how easy it can be to write stories.
“It is part of a school-wide initiative to develop creative writing skills,” said MES Principal Wade Armentrout.
Booth began by telling stories to the entire MES student body on Wednesday. On Thursday, he spent time with all five 2nd-grade classes.
“This is a story-creating workshop,” Booth said. “We look, pretend, talk, draw. We do these things first, then write.”
