Fun With Michael Scotto

Last year some of our classes were lucky enough to have a Skype visit with Michael Scotto for World Read Aloud Day. So when he started planning the tour for his new book Latasha and the Kidd on Keys, he contacted me to see if we wanted an "in person" visit. We were very excited to have this chance. We always enjoy Skype visits, but to meet him in person was even better and the students enjoyed having the opportunity to get signed books.

I think my students' all time favorite trailer is the one for Latasha and the Little Red Tornado.

Michael Scotto read from his books.

He also taught us his rules for writing.
1. Read
2. Listen
3. Imagine
4. Practice, Practice, Practice

Students had opportunities to ask many questions too.

Thanks so much for the wonderful visit and sharing your writing life with us!
