Thursday was an AMAZING DAY!!!
We go to Skype with our FAVORITE author – Laurie Keller.
Who is Laurie Keller?! First, ask your child, they’ll do a better job of explaining her than I will. But, if they aren’t sure, she wrote the Arnie the Doughnut series, that everyone in our class LOVES.
We came up with a list of questions and students went up, introduced themselves and then asked her their question. Laurie was warm, kind, and super generous with her time and answers. We learned that she lives on Lake Michigan (it’s literally in her backyard), likes to doodle (which is how she comes up with some of her characters), and has a whole slew of Arnie the Doughnut books planned (with the earliest one coming out next Spring).
The BEST part!? She asked for OUR feedback — YES! She wants to know what students want to hear — so we have been working on ideas, suggestions and even our own Arnie the Doughnut stories!!
Check out some pictures and videos from the Skype!
