Longer Class Visits
Grade JK-1, I read to children up to Grade 1 and involvethem indramatizing abook, such as “If I could go to the Harrow Fair” Grade I could group work-writing to a patternor just enjoying composing orally, loving words.
With grade 2/3 – I read some of a book , showing the pattern and encourage writing response in a format, I prepare for the class. This may lead to class book making.
Gr. 4-5 may like to know about pioneer times and the underground railway, so I use a Power point presentation based on my book An Unexpected Friendship Amherstburg 1846
Gr.6 ‘How to write what you know’; or a Social studies power point presentation based on a historical novel about the time of 1812-14 war.
Grade 7-8 I use another presentation about how to interview a family member or an important person about the kind of life they have had. I give out suggestions from my experience of doing this. I can also do one on history.I will do 3 different classes during one morning for a set sum. Please contact me for details.
