Author Visit With The Help Of Technology

Modern communication brought us face to face with an author of one of our favorite books. Jonathan Emmet, who resides in England, entertained our students by reading his story, "No Place Like Home."
Ms Kim and Ms Lauren's students were thrilled to hear their story being read by the author and thought carefully about what they wanted to ask him regarding the creation process.

Grade two students were able to speak to the author and ask all the questions they had regarding the inspiration behind the story, choosing perfect words, the colleagues he worked with and the colors of the illustrations.

The chat ended with the girls being inspired to read and write more, one of the goals set by our Reading and Writing Coach, Ms Jenette.

What a wonderful opportunity to have such an important visitor in our class session by the click of a button.
