A big thanks to Fernforest Public School for inviting me to share Six Owls and A Party + my mosaic workshop with eight grade 3 classes over the last three days (it's a big school!). Every class had a great bunch of kids - engaged, thoughtful and very polite!
A while ago Hannah wanted to change her bedroom up - something I'm always game for.
The first thing she wanted to do was take the wallpaper down. Ugh! I said. That's such a big job! I said. How about we paint the wallpaper instead! I said...
Months (many, many months) later my brilliant idea(?), which was a huge job, is finished! All due to the diligent work of Hannah:)
It was the craziest before and after we've (she's) ever done!!!
Oh yeah, and we painted the bed too but that only took a couple of days.
Read to some big crowds today!
Thank you Saint Mary Elementary School for inviting me to share Six Owls and A Party + my mosaic workshop with your very enthusiastic audiences ranging from JK/SK to grade 4.
I read Six Owls and A Party to a big crowd today - 4 JK/SK classes + 3 grade one classes.
My Author Visit took me to Guelph, Ontario where I shared my passion and (maybe) nurtured some future (mosaic) Artists:)
I shared my passion with three very attentive groups today. My Author Visit and Mosaic Workshop was with Junior and Senior Kindergarten classes in Whitby, Ontario. They were wonderful and such amazing sponges - soaking up every detail!!!
Highlight of the day: While packing up my stuff a little boy came over to me, looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Thank you Karen Johnston, have a great weekend".
Thank you Ormiston PS, for making my work day not feel like a work day:)
