UPDATES

OCTOBER 2014 is already history!

Spike and I traveled to East Texas. We participated in Region 7’s Imagination Fair. We had a great time. A special thanks to Ms. Donna Ashby, Ms. Rhonda Baird, and Ms. Janice Baker for all their hard work!

 

Here I am with Kathryn Madigan, one of the amazing storytellers we met in Nacogdoches.

Kathryn Madigan did an amazing job telling, “Rapunzel”.

Each year 1st – 3rd grade GT students learn stories to tell.

We heard wonderful storytellers, and we got to share some stories, too.

On the way home from the 4th day of Imagination Fair in East Texas I stopped in Lindale and did a workshop with 4th graders. They all participated in the storytelling activities and worked on solving riddle tales. They were smart as they could be! Thank you, Ms. Lisa Vader!  And thank you, students, for your good work!

Living History Day – November 7

Every year the students, faculty, and parents at The Covenant School in Dallas create a living history day. The 2nd graders studied the Ancient Greeks. Then they celebrated with Greek foods, costumes, and activities at Cottonwood Park in Richardson, Texas. I told Greek tales and fables for the event. (see more photos in the photo gallery)

Later this month I am traveling to Washington, D. C. I get to present a poster session at the yearly conference of the National Council of Teachers of English. I’m pretty happy that Spike has insisted on going along to see the sites!
