As I mentioned in my earlier Schooled post, Schooled by Gordon Korman is the "One Book, One School" book for my school this year. This means that everyone (5th, 6th, 7th, 8th graders and teachers) read the book. We also did several things that went with the Schooled theme, whole school learned Tai Chi and Tie-Dyed T-Shirts. Today Gordon Korman came to speak to all the kids in our school. Fifth and Sixth graders had a morning assembly and the Seventh and Eighth graders had one in the afternoon. I really enjoyed listening to him speak. He was full of energy and kept me interested in what he had to say. I was lucky enough to be one of twenty kids who got to be a part of a writers workshop he led. As, you know I LOVE authors and learning from them about writing, today's workshop was lots of fun and I learned a lot about writing an adventure scene. Over all, I really enjoyed Gordon Korman's visit to my school.
I am thinking about my dream list of ideas for next year's One Book One School, especially if it means that the author would come. I bet some of my regular reader know which authors I would MOST like to have come :)
