I’m interrupting the DIY graduation party posts to present…
In February, I participated in LitWorld’s World Read Aloud Day by visiting several local kindergartens. Check out Kindergarteners are Super to learn more about those school visits. Through Microsoft Educator, I connected with teachers in Pennsylvania and Canada and Skyped with their students. Not only did the kids actively listen to books or chapters, they met my adorable dog, Lucy. (Curious how adorable she is? Click here to see for yourself.)
I’m not usually one to toot my own horn, but…
…if I don’t, who will?
Guess what came in the mail?
A thank you note from 4th and 5th graders. Shout out to French teacher Madame Diaz who invited me to meet her students. She said, “Thanks for the card and the Skype session Naomi! I think you were by far their favourite Skype guest this year!”
That makes me so happy.
Another big shout out to librarian Ms. Killian. She took these pics and sent me an unexpected review, “On a scale of 1-10 your lesson received a resounding 10!!”
She also said, “We had a fantastic time hearing you read the story to us, listening to your experience as a writer, and we love your dog!”
Connect with Ms. Killian on Twitter @CoLIBRAtoRY.
Shout out, also, to middle grade author Darlene Beck-Jacobson who shared Skype tips and featured me on her blog.
Hon, thanks for indulging me. I hope there are many more school visits in my future.
