Hello from McKenney-Harrison School! Fourth grade teacher Mr. Kindler worked with his visiting author committee to bring me to the Auburn, IN area where I will visit 7 elementary schools over the next week and a half. Today I begin my tour with a visit to Mr. Kindler’s school. I gave 2 main presentations, one for the younger students and one for the older ones. Then I met with 2 smaller groups of kids over lunch. These were students that were particularly interested in writing or illustrating, and they were fired up with tons of questions. During the smaller group meetings, I had a chance to show the students some pages from my journals. I was very impressed that every grade had writing projects displayed in the library! Good job, McKenney-Harrison!
