This morning, I had a wonderful school visit here . . .
First, I spoke to 300 K-2 students in the cafeteria. But really, it felt like only 299 students.
These three things were involved in my presentation:
2. Gigantic Sunglasses
3. A Silly Hat
If you want to know how these things tie into my presentation, well, you're just going to have to invite me to YOUR school.
After that, I presented to approximately 300 3-5 students. But really, it felt like only 9,846,732 students.
A student from the photography club took my photo for their yearbook.
Then, I headed to the media center . . .
At times, it felt like I was in a jungle . . .
The only thing missing were these . . .
Although there were no zebras in the media center, there were ten enthusiastic young writers. We learned that nouns and verbs are the powerhouses of good writing. Then we created a zany fill-in-the-blank story using unusual nouns and powerful verbs. Finally, the students created character profiles and took off from there.
Overall, it was a fantastic visit. The staff and students at Whispering Pines rock!!! But I owe the biggest thanks to the media specialist, Mrs. Wegner, for getting in touch and dragging me, um, I mean inviting me to the school.
So, THANK YOU . . .
And thank you to the energetic, enthusiastic students at Whispering Pines Elementary!!!
Have a great weekend,
