How We Talk About the Pandemic
To help students with acquiring a positive attitude and growth mindset, we are so honored to have the author of Alone Together on Dan Street, Ms. Erica Lyons, conduct a talk on "How We Talk About the Pandemic" on 6th March.
In the presentation, Erica read her book, Alone Together on Dan Street, and looked at other picture books that also focus on the pandemic. Students have learnt a lesson on empathy, creating community, and searching for a silver lining in adversity. She also gave us some tips on how to start as a writer using ideas from daily life and shared how she would read her early drafts to her pet cat.
Our junior school students enjoyed the talk very much and were very curious about the turtle that Erica met on her trip.
