Crescent loves engaging with children and their teachers. She offers several opportunities to do open writing with up to three classes at a time for a hands-on, laugh and learn experience culminating in a deeply rich writing workshop that engages creative writing skills, foundational thinking choices, science, and descriptive writing. Crescent engages children as individuals and as groups to develop a unique and original story as a whole during the workshop. The experience can be expanded into the classroom for extended project experience with their teachers and as a project for each individual and their class as whole culminating in the children illustrating and writing their own ending as they imagine it.
The following options are offered:
Fourth and Fifth Graders-
“Once upon a time there was a story that wanted to be told…”
