For information regarding virtual classroom visits, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your interest, and please know that I am open to hearing your ideas and needs for each visit. For example, I can speak with the class about a particular theme or subject (spider fears, learning to read, inclusive behaviour, bullying, etc.). I can also re-read the book(s) with your class and then have a simple Q & A session, where I can answer the many wonderful questions which children always have! You let me know what you are thinking and I will do my best to meet the needs of your specific group.
I do suggest that you read the book(s) to the class before requesting an author visit. Once you have read the book with your class, the children will become familiar with the stories and their important messages. They will also be more engaged and will probably have a lot more fun making comments about the book. I believe this is a great way to make the children more comfortable when they ask their own questions and talk about the book with the visiting author...and each other.
Rates: Most schools already have a budget for this type of visit.
