PICTURING WORDS, WRITING PICTURES
I love talking to students about words and pictures and the stories you can tell! My interactive programs focus on how to make pictures you can read and words you can see. I feature the range of books that I've created from the award-winning Bea Garcia chapter book series to the popular Doodles at Dinner series, as well as my collaborations with other authors. Students will visualize, verbalize, make pictures out of letters and stories out of pictures. Sometimes the kids will turn themselves into pictures --- plus everybody will receive a magic tool for making words and pictures that fly.
Picturing Words, Writing Pictures programs are geared to grades 1-2 or 3-5 in groups of 125 or less. For a full day school visit this could be combined with a shorter kindergarten program based on the book, Cock-A-Doodle Oops.
My Life in Pictures classroom workshops in which students create accordion books are also available. Students brainstorm, storyboard, and create an accordion book.
A is for Author, a fast, fun look at creating children's books from A to Z is for older kids and adults, and can be tailored as a one-hour presentation or longer workshop format.
