Author Tedd Arnold Coming To Galeton School

Noted Children's Author, Illustrator

A well known children's author and illustrator, Tedd Arnold, is coming to Galeton Area School on Friday, October 17th. He recently won the Edgar Award for the best new young adult mystery, Rat Life, which is his first full length novel. He has participated in the production of over 50 children's books.

Galeton elementary teachers have been busily preparing for his visit with a variety of projects to highlight and enrich his visit. Well over 420 of Tedd's authored and/or illustrated books have been read by the classrooms combined.

The students are linking Tedd's books with dress-up days: Twin Princes with Twin Day; Lasso Lou with Western Day; Green Wilma with Green Day; ending the week by dressing up as any Tedd Arnold character.

The K-2 classes will sing the Catalina song with Tedd; some fourth graders will have Spanish idioms to share.
There will be book related displays--Hugglys' under the bed, "paint your pumpkin patch" with Tedd Arnold characters, Lasso Lou hats, Tedd Arnold book patch, "Huggly goes trick or treating, colorful crowns from Twin Princess, character development graphic organizers, monsters from the "Bad Words" poem, Giant Children posters, similies, metaphors and personification from Fly Guy, along with a wall of idioms, and our own student-designed bookmarks featuring Tedd's characters.

Two special lu
ncheons will be provided incorporating foods from Tedd's books. The first will be for the bookmark design winners and the winners of the Tedd Arnold trivia contest, then the entire school will enjoy the luncheon containing other foods depicted in his stories, as advertised on the school menu.

The public is invited to the free presentations October 17th in the school's high school gym. The Kindergarten through 2nd grade program will begin at 8:30 am, and the assembly for the 4th to 6th grades will begin at 10:00 am.

Tedd will tour the school and examine the children's projects correlating with his books. He will autograph pre-published copies o f his books, however, due to time constraints, he will not be available to autograph any other materials.

Everyone is excited to have a well-known author coming to Galeton, and looking forward to his presentation.
Tedd Arnold resides in Elmira, NY, with his wife and two sons.
