I loved connecting with readers through #WorldReadAloudDay 2021!
"We LOVED your visit!! My district uses the Lucy Calkins Units of Study writing program and our first unit (narrative writing) focuses on small moments. I was going to ask you for advice for reluctant writers and 16 Words and your own words addressed that perfectly! As simple as looking out the window and finding inspiration.
Prior to our Zoom, many students were curious about why just 16 words, why did he write about a wheelbarrow and not himself or one of his patients. Great conversation!"
