When you cannot meet your audience in person, you speak on line. 🦋
What a great experience today, very different, however, wonderful. Normally, I meet my audience in person. But right now, not much is normal anymore, so we have to make things differently. And that can be a good thing.
The topic was about being an author, and the importance of journaling
When I grew up we called it keeping a diary. It is a place for your thoughts and feelings. It’s a kind of method you use, depending on your mood, and needs at the time (and personality) To be able to feel honest, and not judged.
Your dreams, fears, goals, experiences are important.
What I always love is, we suddenly start to speak about other topics, like bullies, and having reading difficulties etc. (Growing up)Fears and wrong beliefs about yourself.
And I loved their brave questions! I had to be brutal honest in my answers. To share about my own difficulties and fears growing up.
Thank you 5th graders, for listening, but also sharing about your own experiences. And a special thank you to their wonderful teacher. 🦋
