Writers Workshop at Webster Hill

Webster Hill Writing Workshop
I enjoyed a fun, FULL day at Webster Hill Elementary School today (the first of a three-day Artist-in-Residence Program.)  I talked to the whole school about developing a story idea from the very basics to a full outline with a main character, goal, and obstacle – and a beginning, middle, and end.  Then I got to put those techniques into practice with three fourth grade classes.  In between, I worked in reading-time with the pre-kindergartners (who were SO SWEET) and a drawing lesson with one of the first grade classes.  They drew AMAZING Monkey Ono’s!  I can’t wait to go back and have more fun tomorrow!  Thanks so much to the PTO at Webster Hill who raises money for my visit!  You guys rock!
