The Red Circle of Doom at Charlottetown School

Had a riot with 150 great kids at Charlottetown Junior Public school on Thursday.
We hit on the idea of a Red Circle of Doom where the  kids couldn't sit, the better for me to roam around and tell stories about Canada.
I visited at the invitation of librarian Michelle Colaco who was interested in sharing advice about writing with the Grade 4, 5 and 6 students.
We talked about the need to re-write and plan. The kids liked seeing sketches Mel, the illustrator for M is for Maple, used to arrive at a finished painting..
Our takeaways were about integrity, the writing process and what it means to be in the Canadian family. It seems to me that Charlottetown has got it going. What an awesome bunch of learners.
