Typically, I make my own travel reservations. However, if you would like to recommend a hotel I should stay at, that would be helpful.
Yes. My assembly programs have a large writing component. Typically half of the assembly is spent writing with the students. If you would like to schedule a separate writing workshop for your students as well, I always enjoy working with smaller groups of students in grades 4-5 (no more than 70) in a workshop setting after they have seen the assembly.
I recommend separate assemblies for primary and intermediate students. The writing lesson I do with primary grades is simpler than what I do with older kids. If your school is only primary or only intermediate, I can do an all-school assembly. In a K-5 or K-6 school, I can do an all-school assembly, but I have to leave out the writing portion of the program.
I can do up to four programs plus an autographing session during the school day. If you like, I can also do an after-school workshop or evening family program for an extra fee. Book signing does not count as a session.
Unfortunately, no. The books you order will be shipped to you directly from the publishers, which prevents me from signing them ahead of time.
I offer a 20% discount and free shipping on all books to allow your PTA or library to treat the book sale as a fund-raiser. The Student Book Order Form lists the full prices of the books. The School Book Order Form is for you to aggregate your students orders, and reflects the discounted price, allowing you to earn a few dollars on each book sold.
