The banner that Miriam College GS Dept. prepared for my welcome!
I gave writing activities too for the girls. Got great feedback from Ms. Monette Basco, Reading Coordinator. Best of all, from the girls because many lined up after for my autograph. I could not believe I was signing their journals and notebooks!
Of course I was nervous at the start! Who wouldn't be? But it turned out really great because the girls were able to write drafts of a possible short story that they can work on later.
This is what I love best -- telling stories! Writing is not easy work, really but I look forward to my next author visit. It is such a joy to be with kids who are interested to listen, dream, write and share stories.
