School & Library Visits

WORM-A-PALOOZA!

SCHOOL AND LIBRARY VISITS!

I love to do school visits!  The students are so enthusiastic!  You will notice that there are very generous discounts available.  I believe that students benefit from enrichment visitors to their schools.  While some schools may choose to spend their entire budget on one visitor, others like to have as many visitors as they can.  Let’s talk about it!

Ideal age groups are preschool through 2nd grade.  Prefer to do multiple programs per day with smaller groups especially with the younger students.

WORKSHOP A:  LET’S WRITE A STORY!

*In this workshop students learn about the process of writing.  We will explore the different parts of a story and discuss story ideas.  How does a story start?  And end?  What is revision?

*Students will then begin their own stories which can be completed at a later date on the provided story boards.

*Day long program with multiple sessions of 30-45 minutes each depending on the age of the students.

*Includes Lunch with the Author! A time for up to 10 students to eat lunch with the author and discuss their questions about books and being an author.

*All visits and lunch times must be supervised by the teaching staff.

*Cost:  $500 with very generous discounts for local schools.

 

WORKSHOP B:  HOW DOES A BOOK GET PUBLISHED?

*In this workshop students learn about the process of publishing and how a story goes from a manuscript to a published book.  We discuss the roles of the author and illustrator as well as agents, editors, publishers, etc.

*Day long program with multiple sessions of 30-45 minutes each depending on the age of the students.

*Includes Lunch with the Author! A time for up to 10 students to eat lunch with the author and discuss their questions about books and being an author.

*All visits and lunch times must be supervised by the teaching staff.

*Cost:  $500 with very generous discounts for local schools.

BOOKS AND AUTHOR SIGNING:  If your school would like to have students purchase WORM WEATHER prior to the event and have them signed in person on the day of the event, please contact me and together we will coordinate purchasing books with the local bookstore.

 

Bonus for Preschools and Kindergartens!

STORY TIME GUEST READER – If you are a local preschool or kindergarten class and would like to have an author come in as a guest reader, please contact me.  One 60 minute no charge visit per school.  Local is considered up to 30 minutes from Middletown, RI.  Includes bookmarks for the children.
