Read and Share the Holiday Tales Anthology

We had a wonderful time at the first annual Holiday Tales And Book Making Workshop. Students  created holiday crafts, built gingerbread houses, listened to and wrote original stories, then bound them all in a unique book of their own creation. Special thanks to Karen Rainsong from Singing Creek Educational Center who taught us about the traditions of book making! We can’t wait to do this fun workshop next December.
