Today I'm asking you guys for some advice.
My daughter, Jessica has been asked by the local elementary school to come in and give a talk about writing and being an author. She's a little nervous as it will be her first time actually speaking in front of a group.
For those of you who have spoken to kids in 4-6th grade, or are teachers, we would appreciate any ideas that have worked well for you on how to engage them in the discussion instead of just talking at them.
She has about 30 minutes with each group and she wants to have enough ideas to last the whole time, so she's not just staring at a bunch of blank faces with nothing left to say!
She would love to get them to do a little activity and involve them in the writing process.
Thanks and have a great fall weekend! Anyone going to get apples and cider?
