Visits & Events

I love visiting schools, libraries, and home school groups. Please contact me if you’d like to hear more about my programs or to schedule a visit.


My Maine

For Preschool through Third Grade

“How is Maine special to you?”

Students will be encouraged to think about what they love about living in Maine and how it is special to them. Just as the main character does on the opening page of the book, students are asked to bring a small item to class that represents Maine and is special to them (sea glass, pinecone, photograph of their favorite place in Maine, and so on.) I will share all the “show and tell” items from the book and do a reading of My Maine. I will then invite the students to share their items that they feel represent Maine.

Next, students are invited to make a classroom book that expresses their love of Maine, using the “share” item to prompt their writing. The level of this writing exercise is based on grade level. For example, younger students may make a classroom book, while older grade levels can work on individual “My State” books. After the writing portion of the program is completed, students can illustrate their book pages.

I enjoy working individually with the children as they write and illustrate their work. If time allows, we’ll end the session by meeting in a circle, when students can feel free to share their completed work with the rest of the class. Some classrooms choose instead to end the session with a brief question and answer period.
