A full day with the student body at North Pole Elementary School on Snowman Lane was this author’s delight. We read from both Prairie Anna and Junk Food Gordon, blitzing the kids with the message that choices matter: food choices or attitude choices. The kids participated in PowerPoint presentations on editing, revising, characterization, and story elements. With the World Series opening tonight, we compared the four necessities in a baseball game to four story elements every story must have. As a final farewell, second grade students in Sharon Miller’s room recited a Jack Prelutsky poem adapted specifically for this author. What a send off.
