Thanks to the support of the Cashton PTO and the work of Mrs. Lee, students were treated to a day with children's book author, Katie McKy. After a dramatic performance of her book, Pumpkin Town, students participated in a writing camp to improve their own skills. This is Katie's second visit to Cashton, both of which were outstanding opportunities for children to further foster a love of literacy and to better understand the writing process. We are proud that she spent her day with us!
Katie taught for 23 years and used storytelling in every subject. Katie combines storytelling and writing workshops for students when she visits schools. Drawing on her experience consulting for various Boston schools out of Harvard, she also does writing workshops for teachers and delivers in-service training sessions on creativity for teachers.
