- Create letter and number shapes for alphabet and math learning.

- Sculpt bird heads when studying how bird beaks are shaped differently fo rdifferent purposes.

- Make a model of a Mesopotamian ziggurat, a Mayan temple, an adobe dwelling, or an Egyptian pyramid.

Book Binding Tutorial and Oak Meadow Giveaway

The art and craft of bookmaking creates a special space to hold our words, drawings and ideas.

Here is a wonderful book binding craft to share with the children in your life, compliments of Oak Meadow Curriculum and School.

Bookmaking fosters an appreciation for the beauty of language.  Handcrafted books can be used for stories, reports, or journaling–or be given to someone as a special reminder of the joy of writing.  This thoughtful article, Hardwired for Writing: The Intelligence of the Hand  explores both the cognitive benefits and charm of handwriting.
