So, I have spent the last 2 days writing personal messages in all the books I am about to hand over to St Benedict’s Junior Prep tomorrow. I want each message to hold a special meaning for the pupil who will be receiving it so that the story becomes a personal journey for each of them.
How Polly Became a Pirate is the first in a series of Polly’s Piralympics that the school has chosen to use for their very interactive life orientation program.
My books have been written as a CROSS-OVER between picture/workbooks and chapter books and are therefore ideal for grade 3 learners. They have interactive pages at the end of each chapter, where children can express themselves by writing and drawing, this helps the children to reflect on what they have just read as well as what they felt about it the story.
I can’t wait to see some of the results and am delighted the Principal Mrs Mackinnon has chosen to use this book with her pupils.
The Polly’s Piralympics Series intertwines a number of life orientation lessons within its pages and enables the pupils to express feeling and emotions that can be picked up by parents and teachers alike about what the child sees and experiences through their own eyes with the encouragement of Polly the Parrot and her Pirates.
