The Story Bakery
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 and finish with a fun "minute to win it" type game.
All student will receive a bookmark and a sticker.
*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
