Author visits in the classroom can tie the magic of reading a book to the excitement of creating it. Children get to see who is behind those silly characters or those unique facts they’ve never heard before. Introducing an author to your students will leave an impression on the children for years to come.
Since I am also a teacher, I already have all of the clearances generally needed to work around children. I am available for visits to schools, libraries, universities– just about anywhere.
Depending on the book chosen and size of group for presentation, I have different activities I do with the children.
Individual classroom visits include:
- A reading of the story
- An activity and discussion about the topic of the book
- Root for Your Character: In this interactive reading, the readers help the characters in the book
- A question and answer session
- Depending on grade level, a peek into the writing and publishing process
