It was a real treat to have author Sharon Holt spend today working with our students. She talked to Harakeke hub students about her books and how she came to be an author of books for children. She also worked with 15 Harakeke students on a writing activity and they learned how to capture a strong emotional event in words. Many of them commented that they gained more confidence in their writing as well as learning new skills. Their writing will soon be published on the library blog. Sharon also shared her picture book Did My Mother Do That? and her Te Reo Singalong books with Koru hub students. It was a great way to end Maori Language Week with the junior students singing and dancing along to Kei Te Peke Ahau.
