Mesquite Teacher Brings Candy Land to Life for Young Writers

Readers in Shelby Wilkinson’s third grade English/Language Arts class in Mesquite were transported into one of the favorite board games of childhood: Candy Land. Students were inspired by the immersive theme of the classroom to develop their writing skills and build a story as they advanced through their individual game steps.
