Local Author Visits Second Grade

Thanks to Fox Hill's PTO, the second graders were treated to an author visit on Friday.  Judith Jango-Cohen, a published nonfiction writer, gave the children an inside look at how she researches, writes, revises and publishes her nonfiction books.  Ms. Jango-Cohen also demonstrated some wonderful writing tips such as "painting a picture" with words and how to use alliteration to make their writing more exciting.

The children were actively involved in her presentation and you can see some pictures and videos below.  Ms. Jango-Cohen's presentations has enticed us to read more nonfiction and we can't wait to start our nonfiction book talks.
