I would have loved to be able to spend half days of the week with kids. Instead of going to work, to be able to take my books, crayons, and scissors, and go to school. But, unfortunately, I cannot play hooky, hence cannot say yes to all the invitations I am receiving, Hence, the problem is either the distance or limited time.
So, for those times that I won’t be able to make it to your school as a guest author, I have listed some ideas of what I love to do in the classroom with the kids. I will not reveal our secret games, our little monkeyshines or magic tricks, to steal time from history class.
So pick a book, grab your crayons and papers, collaborate, share, have fun and create whatever your imagination desires. And do not forget. There is no right or wrong. It is time to play, read fairy tales, time for joy and smiles!
