Sheryl Faye Presents: Laura Ingalls Wilder
Bring Helen Keller, Clara Barton, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart, Abigail Adams, Sally Ride, or Anne Frank to your school or organization!
Laura Ingalls Wilder – The Writer of the Frontier
Children will learn about her encounters with neighboring Indians, her first experiences in school, the brutal winters which almost broke her family, and the joy Laura found in the simple things in life: “love and duty, work and rest, and living close to nature.”
Additionally, children will see the development of a writer beginning with simple storytelling, to Laura creating pictures for her blind sister, Mary, to the development of her “Little House” books at the encouragement of her daughter, Rose.
Laura will also introduce simple writing terms and techniques which are grade-level appropriate and reinforce the way writing is taught in schools, leaving children with the challenge to write their own special stories.
