Author visit in year 6
In year 6 our students are working with Sweden´s different minority languages and they are reading the book “5768 visningar på Youtube”, written by Ralf Novak-Rosengren and Anita Santesson. On Thursday the 15th of November, on nationella läsdagen, Anita Santesson came to us for an author visit and talked to all our year 6 students about her and Ralf´s journey when writing this book. She told us about the background, how they were working with the writing process and last but not least, she gave us an deeper insight to Sweden´s different minority languages.
This was a very useful assembly for us and our students as it gave us more inspiration as to how to work with the process of writing and a fuller understanding about our five minority languages - Romani chib, Jiddish, Samiska, Meänkieli and Finska. This assembly was made possible through Skapande Skola.
Some comments from students:
‘It was inspiring to listen to an author who has written a book that I have read!’
‘Jag tyckte det var en bra timme med Anita och jag vill gärna läsa hennes och Ralfs uppföljare’
‘Jag som elev tyckte att det var jätteintressant’
‘Det kändes som om den timmen tickade fram på tio minuter så intressant var det och vi fick veta mera om hur man kan skriva berättelser’.
‘I really enjoyed listening to her having read the book in class, it was interesting to hear how they had written the book and created the characters’
