Kids Art Rules


SW-GrabYesterday, I performed at North Agincourt Jr. P.S in Toronto.  After the assembly, the grades 3 and 4 classes presented a slide show of two of our Storyvalues stories.  They had illustrated the stories using Pixie, a digital illustration tool, then linked their art to my audio files.  Their work was break taking!  The two stories featured in the slide show were also part of my live assembly, so the kids were able to observe and discuss similarities and differences.

Teacher librarian, Patrick McCartney was the mastermind behind this successful project.

Congratulations to Mr. McCartney and the grade 3 and 4 classes of North Agincourt Jr. P.S!

Happy Storytelling!
