1st graders in costume after a field trip in Novemeber!


Every Tuesday and Thursday, starting February 15 until late May, we will be running bookmaking & storytelling field trips for elementary school students at our writing center in Oakland. The field trips involve a tour of our center, a collaborative storytelling exercise, and finally every child goes home with their own book that is professionally illustrated & includes their own unique ending.
Every week, we need about four volunteers, who each help with different tasks. We need one illustrator, someone to act as our Prime Minister, one typist, and then one or more people to help us make books & to help the students find the bathroom or pass out materials etc. Costumes are encouraged.
