Kermit Visits Schools!!!
Kermit and his nephew Fozzie Bear have been visiting schools everywhere.
The main purpose of these visits is to encourage children to enjoy reading and writing. We explain to them how an author comes up with ideas for writing a book, and how they too, can create a journal of their own experiences and ideas and perhaps one day create their own book.
It is very meaningful and exciting for children to actually meet a real published author, and receive as a gift the book that she has written. It is also exciting for them to meet the star of the book in person.
We also talk about Newfoundland dogs, and what they were bred to do. We tell them the difference between Service dogs and Therapy dogs and what the purpose is of each.
In conjunction with that, we read the book "The Adventures of Kermit the Newf" Book 1 Dog Tales. After the story we talk to the children about being an author. Why it's fun to read books and to also write about their own life experiences and/or the books they have read.
Next we have a question and answer time and then we let each child, who is willing, sit on the floor and pet the dogs. We then give them each a free book to take home and keep. These books have been "Pawtographed" by Kermit.
The book is primarily for the reading level of 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade students, but the content is for all ages.
Revisiting schools is a way for us to continue to foster the ideas of the importance of reading and writing.
On these visits, we give those children who have already received a book, a free Journal. This journal has lined pages as well as blank ones for drawing. It encourages the children to be creative in their own way.
On future visits, the children will have the opportunity to read their Journals to Kermit and Fozzie Bear. The anticipation of the dogs revisiting the children, give them the encourageent to create something that they will be proud of and that the dogs will love.
There is absolutely no cost to the school or group for the presentation or the books and journals. This program is a gift from a Charitable Trust who sponsors us.
We look forward to visiting your child's/grandchild's school and/or the school at which you or your friends teach.
Please let us know when you would like us to visit and we will compare calendars.
Looking forward to meeting you for a fun and enlightening experience.
Thank you for your interest.
