School Visits

The Story Bakery

60 minutes



Presentation Description:


I start the presentation by reading the first chapter of BERNICE BUTTMAN, MODEL CITIZEN.

Next, I lead students in a gameshow type quiz exploring some of the quirky figurative language in the book.

Then, I teach a lesson about how writing a story is like baking a pie (Just like Bernice does in my book!)

We will cover plot, characters, story arc and more.

Lastly, I will answer questions.

*Please no more than one grade level per presentation. If you would like more than one grade level present then consider booking a second session


AV and Tech Needs:


I can go high tech (microphone and projector) or low tech (just a chart paper and some markers!) Just let me know which you prefer.



Due to the fact that I am now a full-time teacher again, I only have a limited number of dates in which to do school visits.


Full-Day engagement (within 30-60 minutes from my home) and up to THREE presentations: $1,000


For locations greater than 50 miles, travel/lodging expenses will be added to basic fee.
