Lakeview Hosts Author

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Lakeview had a very special visitor on Tuesday, December 20th. Ryan Sloth, (author, football player, coach and actor) paid us a visit to share some of his experiences. Writing two books, playing football for the Iowa State Cyclones and being an extra in several blockbuster movies were some of the memories he shared.

He read his two children's pictures, Sammy Sloth Sports Superstar and Sammy Sloth's Big Tourney and shared the connections between the text and his real life experiences. The main message Ryan wanted the Lakeview students to take away from his visit was that it can be easy to write about things you know and love. We are all capable of being authors!

A big thank you goes out to L.E.S.O., Lakeview's Parent Organization, for making this visit possible.
