After the visit, we wanted to figure out a way to say thank you. The students that are happy to be in front of a camera have spoken for all of us in the video below. We hope you enjoy seeing their response to Kate. If you or your class are interested in Skyping with Kate or with other authors, she has a fantastic blog post explaining how it all works and which authors do this: Authors Who Skype with Classes or Book Clubs (for free). This was our schools' second Skype author visit. The first was Tom Angleberger of Origami Yoda fame with our 4th & 5th grade - and he was a hoot. We would like to make virtual author visits a regular occurrence because we learn so much and they are extremely fun. Thanks again to Kate Messner who made our day.
P.S. I forgot to add the video messages of one of my classes. They let me know it when I showed them the video above. Sooooo, here are their messages too.
