Making videos

Hi everyone,

I’ve made 5-minute videos of me reading from two books, AFTER DARK and NOW YOU SEE THEM, NOW YOU DON’T. They’re homemade on my laptop so the quality is about what you would expect, but I was successful yesterday in sharing them with another party so now I can share them with others who might be looking for material for teaching homebound kids. I used “We Transfer” to move the videos. It’s a free program that worked for me although I’m sure there are others that will do as well. My Dropbox is full so I can’t use it unless I spend time deleting stuff and I don’t want to make the effort right now. So far “We Transfer” works for some but not for everyone. Today I hope to try a different way to make these and other videos available, maybe through YouTube. I’ll let you know when I get it figured out.

My publishers remind me that these videos are good through June 30 and should be requested by or through teachers and librarians who are seeking ways to reach their homebound students during this crisis.

    • Actually I made these new ones at home. The picture is from my files when Mary Jo Fresch and I were flown to California by Shell to record the poems I wrote for our 6-book classroom series, LEARNING THROUGH POETRY. I have a picture with both of us that I really like.

      • Yep – I figured this was a picture from another time. I still “works” for the occasion, though! Hope you and Sandy are doing well, and that spring is busting out at Goose Lake!

      • I like that picture, too 😊. We felt like rock stars recording in that studio. And ..there was that over/under bet of how tries it would take to record Shirley the Shark 🦈
