- Letters and words
- The news
- Critical thinking
I look forward to meeting the students, teachers — and the parents! — on March 8.
Found this great post about “kinesthetic” learning on the This Reading Mama blog.
These activities allow kids to touch and manipulate letters, which helps many kids learn to read faster.
Yes, just like in Gabby!
Customized, fun and inspiring presentations for students from grade 1 to high school, from writers’ workshops to media lit and “becoming a writer.” Skype visits also available.
And if you’re in Ontario, TWUC’s Ontario Writers in the Schools Program can help you save money on the fee and they’ll even cover travel expenses.
Email me today to book, or for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us for the launch of Gabby!
Bring your kids – there will be a book reading, colouring and plasticine. Make your own “Gabby” so we can include it in our Kids’ Gallery.
Illustrator Jan Dolby and I will be available to talk to you about the book and personally sign your copy of Gabby.
The party is on Sunday, Jan. 27 at 1:00, at the Intergalactic Travel Authority Cafe (and Story Planet), 1165 Bloor St. W., in Toronto. One block west of Dufferin, on the south side of the street. (Beside Bloor Collegiate.) Hope to see you there! Map to the ITA cafe.
