Matt Glover Inspires!
The voices in our library this Saturday were the energized voices of teachers as they talked with, listened to, and squeezed every ounce of learning about nurturing young writers from our fantastic guest, Matt Glover. Matt has written and co-written several books about writing workshop with our youngest writers. Matt filled the day with examples of picture books from different genre that could serve as mentors for children as they make their own books in the classroom. Many of the books that he mentioned are ones that we already have in the library and are favorites of the children. Several others are titles that will be on our next book order. We were so lucky to have had the opportunity to learn from Matt, and we all left with new excitement about the possibilities and opportunities for our young Parish writers.
