Author Visit 11/4/2009

Today I visited a second grade class at a local primary school. I read my new book, The Canada Goose and You to the class. They "HONKED" right along with me. We had fun!

I talked about how I turn ideas into stories and avoid writers block. First, I taught the kids some Brain Gym exercises. Then we brainstormed ideas to put in a story. Next, we rearranged our ideas into the beginning, middle, and end. We ended up with a nice first draft.
