“March Reading Month” at Dugsi Academy
Yesterday after I got back from the psychiatrist office, I finally had the energy and time to sit down and edit the photos from my visit to Dugsi Academy on March 5th. Many thanks to my friend Ben Cooper for photography and video of this event. The kids almost knocked over the tripod a few times, and there is no way I could have had such lovely shots without his help.
The first-grade girls were possibly more excited by my makeup, hair, and hat, than the activity sheets I made for them. Fortunately, I was not bothered by them grabbing at me until they started trying to remove my hat!
It was a great time, and I hope to receive similar opportunities in the future. When I have had a chance to touch-up the activity sheets I made, as well as produce a few new ones, I plan on making them available as free downloads on a special all-ages webpage for parents, teachers, and grown-up kids.
When I have more materials prepared I would also like to reach out to public libraries and other children’s organizations within the community.
