On January 5th I visited Park School in Baltimore.A welcoming school in a beautiful setting. It was only the second day back after the winter break but students and teachers alike were enthusiastic and involved. The day began with two assemblies, storytelling about my books and writing life. As always galimotos stoled the show.
Then we moved on to a third grade writing project. Note my inspiring funny face. :-)
Writing from POV. How does the gum feel, think when it is being opened stuck in the mouth and chewed?
After school parents came to help build galimotos and sculptures from recycled items.
The day ended with a book signing at a local children's bookstore. I remember when we used to have independent book stores too in Pittsburgh...sigh....
