I love to do school visits! I live in Northern California, but also visit other places on occasion.
I have three school presentations:
The first is a 20-25 minute interactive reading of ROAR where I encourage kids to ROAR! along with me as we read. It is ideal for preschoolers and kindergartners.
The second talk is 25-30 minutes long, intended for kids who are just beginning to recognize words. This talk encourages them to focus on pictures to tell their story, using ROAR! as an example.
The third talk is also 25-30 minutes long, for kids who are more comfortable with writing and reading, and focuses on Crawly School for Bugs, written by David L. Harrison, illustrated by yours truly. This talk includes a section on the importance of using researching in order to create convincing characters.
Please let me know if you would like me to come to your school. I’d love to hear from you! julie(at)juliebayless.com
