Bookmaking Workshop

We held a Bookmaking workshop in Yellowknife in October. Twenty people attended the workshop. Participants learned how to make six different kinds of books:

  1. Envelope book
  2. Family book (padded binders)
  3. Folding book
  4. Foam book
  5. Quick book
  6. Pop-up book

Participants really enjoyed their day of making home-made books. One participant said, "I can now teach children and other moms how to make simple, inexpensive books." Another participant said, "Who knew, making books was so much fun and so easy?"

Family Tutoring is a program that supports school-age children and their parents with reading and writing. Participants learned new and exciting ways to engage children and families in reading and writing. They specifically learned eight different reading and writing strategies.
