YES!  I love to do school visits for elementary age kids.

My fee for a day is $800 (plus travel costs if outside of the Twin Cities Metro).

This includes up to 3, or at most 4 presentations per day.  I prefer to present to single classes (under 30 kids) for about 45 minutes.  I am willing to speak to larger groups as well, under 90 kids.

The best fit for my talk is Kindergarten-1st-2nd grade.

My program generally includes:

  • a reading of Rhoda’s Rock Hunt
  • a book talk about writing from nature and the picture book process
  • activities related to setting and sensory language (large group and individual)
  • and Q&A.

For small groups, I can bring along rocks and talk about how agates are formed. If your first grade class will be studying rocks (like all first grades in Minnesota!), my talk is a wonderful jumping off point for that unit!

If you’d like a Loon Baby school visit or storytime, let me know. Students studying birds or our region’s wildlife/ecosystems will enjoy hearing about the process behind that book, and learning loon facts in fun and engaging ways.

Contact me if I’d be a good fit for your school!
