Katie the Creative
By Katie Ortiz
Katie the Creative is a superhero. She uses her creativity to help kids in the city.
When Katie the Creative hears someone in trouble, she flies to rescue them!

Up, up, and away!
Today, she is helping students at her local school figure out how to write a book!

"First," she says, "We need to brainstorm some ideas!"
She helps the class use their own creativity to come up with some SUPER ideas!

"Next," she says, "We need to write a draft, or as I like to call it, a sloppy copy!"

The whole class laughs with her at the name she calls it.
"HA, HA, HA!!"
Katie flies around, helping students turn their brainstormed ideas into "sloppy copies". Students write down their ideas in sentences and paragraphs without worrying about grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

"Once we are finished with our sloppy copy," Katie adds, "We can re-read what we wrote and begin to revise and edit. This is when you start to correct your spelling, punctuation, grammar, and any other things to help your book be as SUPER as you are!"
"Lastly, we get to publish our book!" Katie exclaims.

Katie the Creative flies around the class helping students write their stories as beautifully as they can and draw and color illustrations. They make SUPER fantastic books.
