Presentations for Younger Children

by James M Deem

 

All of my books are intended for students in grades 4 and up. However, I am sometimes asked to speak to younger students.

As the father of four, I am comfortable speaking to any age group. When I speak to children in grades K-3, I usually talk to them briefly about my job as a writer and then prepare them for some stories by using a few PowerPoint slides to teach some vocabulary. Then I read a story or two that come from my book on buried treasure.

I spoke to children in this age group at the Copenhagen International School a few years ago. We had a memorable time that day.
