Common Core Requires Information Text Captured by Eleven Year Old Author
The Common Core is a set of high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA). These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do by the end of each grade. Designed through collaboration among teachers, school chiefs, administrators, and other experts, the standards provide a clear and consistent framework for educators. The Common Core is informed by the highest, most effective standards from states across the United States and countries around the world. The standards define the knowledge and skills students should gain throughout their K-12 education in order to graduate high school prepared to succeed in entry-level careers, introductory academic college courses, and workforce training programs.
Eleven year old Lexi Schwartzberg is the author and creator of a new book, Lily Droplet's Amazing Adventure: The Water Cycle (ISBN: 978-0-99629-331-0).
After receiving an assignment in school to write about the water cycle from the point of view of a water droplet, Lily’s Adventure began. The talented young author quickly turned the one paragraph assignment into a full-length story, incorporating the science and lessons through dynamic and charming characters. The illustrations are equally delightful. Lexi worked with her Aunt Danielle, an amazing and talented artist to illustrate the book. The two worked together to capture the fun and interesting path of Lily Droplet’s Amazing Adventure.
During the course of the book, Lily experiences all the wonders of the water cycle. Lily Droplet’s Amazing Adventure teaches the concepts of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation; joining her along the journey are many friends and relatives, each with a unique personality expressed throughout the book.
Lexi Schwartzberg is building a strong following of young readers and educators worldwide, by sharing her creative talent and curiosity. Elements of the Common Core are addressed via informational text, making Lily’s Adventure a perfect complement to early STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum.
