Dr. Johnson shared tips with students on how
to get and stay excited about their writing, and ways to make what they write
even better. The students were actively
engaged, and some grade levels even shared with her illustration suggestions
for upcoming new books she may publish.
day ended with an evening of recognizing all students as authors and
artists. Each student shared with
parents a self-written and published book on a topic of choice. A gold star was added to the book during the
ceremony to make the activity even more special for the students. Following this, students led parents to the
cafeteria where original pieces of framed artwork were displayed for each
student. Parents were able to purchase
the artwork to add to their home collections.
WCES PTO graciously sponsored the author visit, provided materials and
handiwork for the book compilations, and also provided a nice pizza dinner free
of charge to all in attendance at the evening event. It was certainly a day of celebration that
will be remembered by all for many years to come!
