And Then It Happened...Hilarious Author Visits St. Christopher School


April 20, 2012 - On Tuesday, April 10th, the Junior students at St. Christopher Catholic Elementary School had the opportunity to meet Michael Wade, the author of the books, And Then It Happened. Geared to appeal to boys, these books are full of humour and adventure. "I had purchased the first couple of books from Scholastic. I figured I would try them out in my classroom, to see if the boys would enjoy them. Enjoy them, turned out to be an understatement! Not only did the boys love them, the girls did too (including me). You know you've found a great series, when the bell is about to ring for recess, and the students still want you to read more. We are almost done book number six," says Shanna Whalen, the Grade 4 teacher. Michael's presentation consisted of explaining the importance of knowing how to read, especially high frequency words, the editing and drafting process, and expanding vocabulary. His goal was to teach the students that anyone can become a writer. He definitely achieved his goal and got a lot of laughs in the process! A day to remember for sure!
