Guest Author Visits First Grade

As a culminating event to our informational writing unit on "How To" books, first graders enjoyed a special visit and demo from one of our very own parents, author Katie Webster.  Katie shared her recently published cookbook, Maple, with the students.  She talked with them about the process she goes through as a writer, the steps that were involved in writing a cookbook (a type of "how to" book!), and the necessity of clear and precise steps for the reader to follow.  Then, Katie was willing to demo one of her very own recipes, to see if her steps and directions would actually work!  She made Maple Sour Cherry Shirley Temples from her new book, and they were delicious!!  What a special treat!  Thank you, Katie!!  Come back and visit anytime!
