Featured Lesson

KUTU, The Tiny Inca Princess

STORYTELLING LESSON

Now you can book my new storytelling lesson for your IN-PERSON visit to your school.

In a fun interactive lesson, students will learn about the Inca culture and mythology. We will find ourselves in the world and will open the door to Kutu’s adventure in the times of the Incas. My new Kutu doll and other props will help bring to life this adventurous story!

Key learning points:

Geography: Locate our state/city, and locate where the story takes place (South America)

History: Inca culture and their place in time. Brief explanation of the Spanish invasion.

Culture: Inca customs and society organization.

Language Arts: Discerning between fiction and nonfiction elements of a story. Listening and comprehension.

  • My main goal is to inspire children to write and create. Also, I’d like to foster the love for reading as a healthy habit.

  • Your students will benefit from meeting a real-life author who loves reading as much as creating her own books.

  • Each presentation is geared toward the specific age group… from kindergarten to high school!

  • I have experience visiting schools. Not only I have visited over 150 schools through Skype, but I’ve also visited schools in Oklahoma in the Putnam City District and OKCPS. My 8 year experience as a preschool teacher has given me the necessary tools to keep children engaged, focused, and motivated.

  • With older classes, I’ll share pictures as well as writing examples, some of my own rewrites and edits, and anyone said rejection letters? Yup! That’s all part of being a writer!…

  • I’d love to speak in Spanish with your ESL or ELL students! As an English as a Second language speaker myself, I’ll be glad to encourage them to keep on pushing through the challenges of language learning. And boy, do I have some interesting stories to tell.

  • Children of all backgrounds benefit from meeting a writer who is immigrant, and bilingual. Let’s break stereotypes together! Representation matters!
