Author Visit: “Chain Links, We’re Better Together”

Program Description

Author Visit for Grades 4 – 6
Book title: Chain Links, We’re Better Together
I believe my stories will support a literary approach to empowering your students in creating community and a culture of kindness. My visits explore how literary works can provoke actions from readers to help others. The power of a story is magnified when it is shared.
The program is an interactive presentation through illustrations, songs written specifically for the book, and author narration. The program is designed to complement the learning standards.
Example:
Integration of Knowledge and Ideas:
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.4.7
Make connections between the text of a story or drama and a visual or oral presentation of the text, identifying where each version reflects specific descriptions and directions in the text.
The presentation complements the National School Climate Center’s vision: children will develop the essential social, emotional and intellectual skills to become healthy and productive citizens.
