Awesome Afternoon at East Calloway Elementary!

Yesterday I had the honor of visiting with the 5th graders at the East Calloway Elementary in Calloway County, Kentucky.  Teacher Keri Simmons invited me to come and present my “Revolutionary War in a Trunk” talk to all fifty-six of her kiddos.  They were so amazing, interested, and interactive!

Mrs. Simmons bought an entire class set of Little Hornet … so all of the kiddos will be reading, studying, and enjoying my story about the Hamilton brothers of North Carolina.  Several kids bought copies of both Little Hornet and Little Warrior.

Altogether, it was a great day of living history in the classroom!
