Students at CIS enjoyed a visit from author David Nieves. He shared his knowledge of reptiles with the students and talked about why it is important to share what we know with others. He talked about the Six Traits of Writing and how to take a broad idea and narrow it down to a topic that is manageable. He told students that when they add their own voice to their writing, they make it fun for others to read. Students enjoyed listening to his stories and seeing his interesting reptiles.
