What an exciting day, even though it took me an age or two to get to the school this was so much fun.
Hayley Smith at Cronula South Public School asked me to come and present at the school for their Reading Picnic Day to help celebrate the ongoing relationship between Australia and the Asian region. The Reading Picnic Day was designed to provide learning opportunities for our students explore and appreciate texts, language and traditions from countries within Asia to coincide with the new English syllabus. And I was their author as a guest speaker.
All students were assigned Asian countries with each group made up from students across all grades. It was wonderful seeing the senior students helping the infants children and then the infants children telling the senior students what to do! Each group rotated through a whole host of activities – including spending time with me! I told stories and as usual Sounds Spooky was a HIT – especially when the hall was filled with studnents yelling ARGH!! (I should have warned the teachers!)! And coming a close second was Python with our crawling along the floor, sniff like a python activities.
And as can be seen from these pictures below the students looked stunning in their school uniforms. Thanks Hayley for these photos and thanks to the students for a really fun day! And thanks to the staff at Kogarah Children’s Library who recommended me!
More on the Carolinas later but Pam Vaughan (official photographer for the New England conference last weekend) has just sent me oodles and poodles of photos … so if you don’t want to see piccies of me in action – then look away now! There are photos of me with friends, of me panelling, photos […]
