Author Rob Buyea visits with students

Because of Mr. Terupt author Skypes with the 4th, 5th, & 6th graders

March 01, 2013

The students in the 4th, 5th, & 6th grades have been reading 10 different books, including Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea, in preparation of the Battle of the Books in March.  On Wednesday, February 27, the students had the opportunity to listen to and talk with author Rob Buyea, "live" from Massachusetts, via Skype web camera.  We could see & hear Rob on our Smartboard & laptop, and he could see & hear us.

The author, who previously taught 3rd & 4th grade, told the students some of the stories behind the incidents in the book Because of Mr. Terupt.  Individual students were able to come to the laptop microphone to ask questions about the author, the book, and their favorite characters, etc.  It was an excellent way to the students to interact with the author.  Rob Buyea made the interview a lot of fun by telling stories with lots of dramatic effect and humor.  

Comments froInserted Imagem students included, "It was cool!"  "He was funny."  "I liked the part when he told about the water fountain."   Everyone had a good time during this author "visit.'

Although Rob was unable to answer everyone's question, his website has contact information so that interested students may choose to write him.
