Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Author Visit Teaching Materials & Ideas
This year, instead of printing and distributing a packet, we have used this flyer to sort and link different resources from Lynda's extensive personal website. All resources are organized by book, hopefully making it easier to pick and choose how to integrate Lynda's work into your classroom prior to her visit.
Below, you will find links to biographical information, summaries for both novels, book trailers, FAQs and even clips of Lynda reading entire chapters from her books! While both are exceptional, Fish in a Tree is generally appropriate for fourth and fifth grade while One for the Murphys is better reserved for fifth grade.
We are very excited to welcome Lynda to our school and hope you find the resources we are sharing helpful. You may want to start by reading Lynda's message to teachers!
