Special Author Visit: Judith Jango-Cohen

Today the second graders were treated to a special presentation.  Local non-fiction writer, Judith Jango-Cohen came to speak with the children.  This is a annual event sponsored by the Fox Hill PTO.

Ms. Jango-Cohen is a Burlington resident who writes non-fiction books for children.  She explained to the children how she does research for her books.  Then Ms. Jango-Cohen demonstrated how to write with painting a picture with words using vivid verbs and techniques such as alliteration, metaphors, similes, and rhyming. The children also role played some animals to see how the adapt to their environment.  Everyone was quite involved in the presentation.

Coming home with your child today will be a book order of Ms. Jango-Cohen's books.  The orders will be due on Wednesday, May 3rd. Ms. Jango-Cohen will be coming back next week to talk with us about immigration to kick off our Social Studies unit on Cultural diversity.

  1. I really like this step taken by the school. Such arrangement show dedication of the school as well as the teachers to the students. It will help the students to learn the writing techniques in a better way.
