Kirksville kids

Hi everyone,

Robyn Paso, the librarian at Kirksville Primary School, sent me some pictures of my recent visit there. You don’t see me in this shot but I was standing in front of 560 students K-2 on the gym floor and spoke for thirty minutes. After that we broke into groups so I could work with individual classes.

At the end of the day we met back in the gym where each group performed something I’d assigned them during our earlier sessions. The students all did a stellar job. It was a happy day.

Hi everyone,

Today I’m with 550 K-2 students in Kirksville, Missouri public schools. Working with librarian Robyn Pasa and principal Ernest Motely we set a schedule that should keep everyone involved. Wish me luck.

8:30-9:00 K-2 Opening Assembly David Harrison will present an opening assembly where he will introduce himself, talk about being an author and give an overview of what he will be doing with each grade level later in the day.
