Blair 5th Graders Skype with Author

Ms. Alexander’s 5th grade students from Blair Elementary recently read the novel, Breadcrumbs, and were privileged to Skype (video chat over the internet) with the author of the book, Anne Ursu. 

There were many questions answered in the 30 minute Skype call. The students learned about her writing and re-writing process. She also taught them about how she developed her characters and created parts of the story.  The students benefited greatly and acquired many new skills to apply to their own writing.
