Revisiting Ms. Deam's 1st Grade Class
Rather than read my book word-for-word to Ms. Deam's 1st grade class, I used my illustrations and performed abridged version using my illustration boards.
A student asked: “How do you know all the words in your book?”
I explained that I wrote the book. I had to re-read and edit it several times, which helped me memorize the words.
Thank-you teachers for inviting me into your classrooms.
