This is a busy week for me.
Tuesday, January 29th: I will be spending the evening at Ashley Falls Elementary in Del Mar for their "Slippers and Stories" event. I am very excited! I might have to find some very cool slippers to wear--that I can bling up before the event. Must put that on the list! Maybe Oreo will have some slippers, too... (where does one get slippers for a pet monkey puppet?)
Wednesday, January 30th: Story Day at Jefferson Elementary. I have not yet completely decided upon which grade levels will get which stories, but so far it looks like this:
1st: The Magic Fish
2nd: Kipling's The Elephant's Child from JUST SO STORIES
3rd: The Letter Activity Pt. 2. (In December, the students wrote to my puppets. Now, it's time for some asnswers! Live, unscripted answers!)
4th: A Chinese tale (I am thinking 7 Chinese Brothers maybe. Our fourth graders take Mandarin classes, so I'd like to do a story from China. Also thinking about Ten Suns.)
5th: A German tale: (The fifth graders learn German, so I'd like to do a little known Grimm tale, but I need to do a bit more research.)
Friday, February 1st:
I'll be at Barnes and Noble in Oceanside at 7:00 for the Mission Meadow's bookfair. Thinking of bringing a few door prizes--maybe making up a few more Trinket boxes. I'll be talking about the GOOD KNIGHT books and THE SEVEN TALES OF TRINKET and probably read a little of each. And of course, the puppets will come.
Saturday, I will be sleeping in, I think.
