SCHOOL VISITS: K - 6
For the younger crowd, (K-1) it's more about the simple joy of books and reading, through laughter, call-and-response and song. For 2nd & 3rd, I usually share my "Evil Inner Editors" which are funny, but I also offer strategies about overcoming writing struggles. With 4th thru 6th, I talk more about the revision process. For laughs, we'll take a look at my evil editors, but I'll usually add an activity that drives home the importance of choosing great verbs.

KIM EMPOWERS YOUNG READERS AT GUY K. STUMP

We had a grand time at on April 10, 2014. I did a whole school assembly, a couple of gifted-and-talented workshops and an evening program, where the attached photo was taken. (Sorry this adorable little girl's face is cropped out. I wasn't sure I had her mom's permission to show it.) She had come to the program with my I KNOW A WEE PIGGY already in hand, thanks to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, from which she had received a free copy of the book some time before.


Lindsay Coyner, reading specialist, did a wonderful job coordinated the event. The winner of the Authors for Earth Day ballot, by a landslide, was the Wildlife Center of Virginia, which is in Waynesboro, fairly near Stuarts Draft.
