Field Elementary Kindergarteners Meet Authors at Fair

Clown Field Elementary kindergarten students, along with teachers Katherine Aud and Kristen Silva, met and talked with author/illustrator Paul Brewer and submitted self-portraits inspired by his illustrations in Kathleen Krull’s book Clip, Clip, Clip: Three Stories about Hair during the recent 39th annual Authors Fair, held at the San Diego County Office of Education. 

One classroom used torn pieces of construction paper to represent their hair, while the other classroom used pictures of hair cut out from magazines. The students also attended a performance by a storyteller and visited displays of student work inspired by all the participating authors.

Local clowns were on hand to entertain students with bubbles, parachute activities, puppets, and games in between activities. The fair is co-sponsored by the Greater San Diego Reading Association.
