I really enjoyed speaking to 5th grade classes at Charlotte Christian School. The enthusiasm of this class was infectious. Their imaginations ran wild…even though most of the classes hadn’t read the book. All I had presented was the trailer and the back of the book. (The actual point of the presentation will come later.)
I am very surprised that some of the students’ first reaction about the premise of Magnus Kir is that it reminded them of the Garden of Eden. So, Zack supposedly represented humanity in the book. It’s funny to me because that wasn’t intentional at all- and it seems so obvious to me now.
The actual presentation revolved around the steps to becoming an author. Here are the steps I came up with…if you think I’ve missed something let me know!
