Our grade 2 and 3 students had the opportunity to virtually connect with Toronto based author, Philippa Dowding!
Through the Adobe Connect platform, students were able to hear Dowding’s journey to becoming a published, and award winning author, and even participate in a Q & A! Our grade 3 students are currently reading Dowding’s book, Myles and the Monster Outside, as they work through the 10 nominated titles in the Canadian Forest of Reading’s Silver Birch Express Contest. Students participate in the contest by reading the 10 nominated titles, and then are able to vote on their favourite book at the end of April!
Our Wilshire students were so excited to engage with Philippa, and with other students around Ontario. We hope to be able to set up future virtual author visits!
