We are so lucky to have talented Australian children’s author and poet Kathryn Apel (Kat) visiting our school on Monday, May 22nd to play with words, create some poems and talk about her verse novels with the students in Years 3-6. Kathryn is visiting from her home in Queensland. I have known Kathryn on Twitter for quite some time and I am really looking forward to meeting her in person!
Kathryn paints pictures with words and her goal is to find the perfect word for every situation…which is sometimes a lot harder than you think!
Kathryn has written three verse novels. The Year 3 and 4 classes have been listening to Bully on the Bus and learning a lot about the power of words and some of the Year 6 students are reading On Track for their Book Group novel. The Year 6 students have also been trying some of Kathryn’s techniques to help visually present their Anzac poems.
Too Many Friends was released on Monday, May 1st and Kathryn made this book trailer for her book.
