Storytelling and Bookmaking

Recommended for students second–fourth grade (30 students max).

Students are charged with the task of writing an original story as a group, with the help of 826 volunteers. While students decide on characters and plot points with a leader, another volunteer types the story, and it is projected onto the wall. Students can track the story’s progress and ask to have corrections made as needed. Meanwhile, a organization artist is illustrating the story. As the pages are finished (one set for each student), support volunteers are collating in our back production room. In the second half of the field trip, students each write their own endings with help from the leader and other volunteers. Thus, as soon as the class finishes creating the story, we’re ready to bind the books with our in-house tape bindery.

Students will go home with personalized books created as a class, with illustrated covers, and each student’s photo on an About the Author page. This field trip teaches students about collaboration, self-editing, the bookmaking process, and elements of successful storytelling. And it’s really a good time for all.

Request a field trip for your class and provide your preferred month to visit 826.
