I do a few school visits each month, but during April and May is my primetime for reaching out to children and teachers. This year, I started things off at Clinton Elementary School in Clinton, MA, where I did presentations about bats (grade 2) and birds (grade 3).
Besides discussing my writing process and the book-making process, we also did a slew of fun, hands-on activities to help students understand the amazing anatomy and physiology of the animals around us. What a great day!
Today, I’m heading out to Memorial School in Medfield, MA, to present to preK-grade 1 students. I’m really looking forward to it. I learn as much from the students as they learn from me.
