Fourth graders SKYPE with award-winning author Avi
Over the summer all the Lower School students and faculty read a book by one of their favorite authors. Avi wrote The End of the Beginning: Being the Adventures of a Small Snail (and an Even Smaller Ant). Mrs. Presser, LS librarian, and Mrs. Minser, LS technology specialist, arranged a SKYPE with Avi, who lives in Colorado. Fourth graders learned about the author and wrote questions to ask him during the SKYPE session. Students gathered in the LS library story pit to learn from Avi. Students listened to his advice about developing story lines and characters, writing and re-writing, about listening and looking at things through a new eyes, and about being imaginative and creative.
