Author Penny Parker Klostermann oh-so-kindly visited our school last fall.
I spent the week before her visit reading her book to my students and talking about the story.
It took her quite a while to autograph the books.
Then she spoke to a rapt group of 700 PreK-2nd grade students.
She brought lots of props.
A group of students acted out the story.
Klostermann shared what might happen if the dragon visited our school.
Two second graders were selected to ask questions.

Fab picture of the kids so focused on her talk, and I loved the picture of the dragon swallowing the bus! Fun day out ...ReplyDelete
Yes, only a good book can keep children so engaged.Delete

What a great event! Special occasions like this author visit will surely inspire more children to read. Your photo of the children's faces says it all.ReplyDelete
My Saturday Snapshot post features my grandmother.
Nothing like a wonderful author visit!Delete
What a great experience, and the kids look so engrossed. Nothing grabs a kid's attention more than those "props" and the opportunity to participate.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.
You are right. In addition to being a great author, Klostermann is also a former educator. She had a well-designed program.Delete
Thanks so much for blogging about my visit. My day in Alvin ISD was incredibly fun and enjoyable. All of the schools were so welcoming and the students were a joy. Sharing my book was a treat! Thanks, again!
We loved having you!Delete

If the only thing I do in my last years is to help kids become excited about books then I will be happy.Delete
