When Patricia Polacco visited our school last week, I took notes on what she did, what she said, and how the kids reacted. I also wrote down some of the cool things that she said. Then I misplaced the notebook that I wrote everything in. Just found it yesterday, thank goodness, and I wanted to share some of Patricia’s words:
“Art is like breathing.”“Red heads are enchanted so if you don’t have a redhead for a friend, you better get one skippy quick.”“The energy is in you.”“Write what you know.”“You were born with the power to change others. You change people by the way you treat them. That is what changes the human heart.”“The truth is the journey you take through a story.”“Everyone in this room is gifted. None of us open our gifts at the same time. And if someone has opened theirs before you, think nothing of it. You will open yours in time.”
|Patricia certainly made an impression on all the students and staff|
at our school. She created this drawing just for us! All the kids got
a copy of their own to keep.
