My most recent author visit was with Pipestone Elementary School. I had such a wonderful virtual time with them. We talked and moved and wrote and connected. I was so tickled to get a lovely packet from Marcy Schmitke, the school librarian. I love how each grade level was inspired by the session we did. K-1 students (weather) wrote their names in clouds. Students in grades 2-3 (the creative process) jazzed up their names in a creative fashion. And students in grades 4-5 (equation poems) sent me equation poems about me and about them. I loved reading through these! When you send thank yous after visiting with an author, you make their day. Trust me!
[My Classroom Connections posts share a way to connect one of my books or poems to a classroom topic–often something timely that you might be covering in the next month or so. Please share this post if you have educator friends who might be interested–thanks!]
