Children's Author Virtual Visit via Nepris - Donna McDine
By invitation through nepris, teacher Ms. Jami Gallo of the Francis H. Sheckler Elementary School in Catasauqua, PA reached out to me to conduct an author virtual visit for their 2nd grade classes.
What a wonderful way to spend my lunch time on December 10, 2019 when I video chatted with Ms. Gallo's class and had the opportunity to share my author presentation, How a Book Comes to Be.
The students were a true delight and after the presentation we had time to chat about Writing Children's Books. We focused on how they are studying various forms of writing and the stages of the writing process. The second graders asked insightful questions that kept the ease of conversation flowing.
They also shared with me that they read my children's book, Hockey Agony together as a class! Woo hoo...I'm thrilled!
I am filled with deep gratitude and joy for being selected to virtual visit with the students and teachers at the Francis H. Sheckler Elementary School. Thank you Ms. Gallo and nepris for arranging such an exhilarating time.
