Author Visit -- Melissa Sweet
Two weeks ago, Melissa Sweet was the visiting author at our school. There are three great things about an author visit: all the learning that takes place before the visit, the excitement of meeting the author on the day of the visit, and the learning that lingers after the author has gone back home!
Second graders learning about Ohio animals made constellations of the animals after reading TUPELO RIDES THE RAILS.
If you're getting ready to meet an illustrator, you might want to take some sketching lessons online and sketch an illustration to go along with your wolf research.
Fourth graders who read A RIVER OF WORDS illustrated poems in the style of Melissa Sweet, using collage and watercolors.
