Young Author Teas

During the months of February, March, and April the students in the kindergarten class of Ms. Benner begin to create an original picture book on a topic of their choosing.   The process begins with creating painted pages of paper using a variety of techniques.  These papers become their portfolio of colors to cut from as they make their book.

The books are created in a collage, cut out style, which looks similar to the work of Eric Carle.   As students create their illustrated pages, they begin telling their story to others.  Once the illustrated pages are completed, students then write text to accompany the pictures.  This long term project culminates in several evenings of “Authors Teas” at which time each author/illustrator publicly reads their book to family and friends.
