Author Study

After reading many books by Chris Van Allsburg, students created their own talk show where memorable characters from his stories were interviewed about their magical experiences.  The video clips below show the introductions that the talk show hosts wrote for each of the characters.  The hosts then created their own presentation to tell a little more about each character and to record some of the questions that were asked during the show.  They also wrote the responses that they thought the characters would have answered with. 

The Chris Van Allsburg Show

       The 4th graders read books written by Patricia Polacco and Chris Van Allsburg and then created a glog on their author. They used Portaportal, Google and other sites to gather information and images about their author.  Take a look and learn about these great authors.
