Do you love stories and books? Did you know that anyone can become an author or illustrator? We are all full of stories, some from our real life and some from our imagination. In this flexible schedule class, we will grow as authors and illustrators as we take our story ideas and turn them into homemade books. Each week, students will learn how to make a new homemade book and we will explore story elements together to expand our creative writing ideas. The overarching goal of this class is...
Bookmaking can be a motivating way for young learners to use their developing literacy skills. The overarching goal of this class is to spark children's excitement for using their current literacy skills in creative and meaningful ways. I believe that learning to read and write is a process that develops gradually with support, time, and authentic opportunities to use their developing skills. The books each learner makes in this class will depend on their stage of literacy development (they may be drawing, writing letters and/or words, sentences and/or paragraphs). The class is designed to support the child in their current stage of development and to inspire them to use their current skills in new ways.
I have a Master's degree in early childhood and inclusive education with an emphasis on literacy. When I was a child I loved making books and I have encouraged my children to turn their stories into books as well. I have been an educator for 20 years and am passionate about teaching literacy skills that support a lifelong love of reading and writing. Storytelling and book making are some of my favorite ways to support literacy development. I see all children as capable individuals who are motivated to learn when their interests are honored and they are encouraged to make their own discoveries.
Paper (standard copy paper 8 1/2 x 11 will be used to model the book making, but other sizes can be used at home) Tape Scissors Something to write/draw with
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Scissors are needed for making the pop-up books for this class, if your child still need supervision using scissors, please make sure you are nearby. Thanks!
