I ordered a class set of Full Moon Lagoon and read it with my Grade 7 students. They loved it! It also tied in well with our study in Social Studies of the World Wars. Monica was kind enough to arrange a video chat with my class where she was willing to answer questions about the book and the process of publishing. Thank you so much Monica! We look forward to more books from you!
My students were thrilled with the idea that we could invite a real “author” to visit our classroom and talk to us about how she writes and polishes her work. None of them was expecting a bright-eyed, energetic teacher wearing a pig nose. I watched in delight as my diverse class (with several students dealing with learning, emotional and mental challenges) were spell-bound by Monica’s wit and off-beat charm. Bums were bouncing in glee with her story-telling and eagerness to contribute to her “what if…” activity. Kids who were often disengaged gave Monica their rapt attention; kids with many different levels of academic ability were involved and thinking and learning.
Monica’s visit was a highlight of our exploration of the craft of writing and one that I know has positively influenced every child in that room.
