Some stories were imagined memories, but very special just the same!
paper plates, string, drawings and stories by the After School Program students

Banff Elementary School
What a fun day with the After School Program! 18 enthusiastic and talented young storytellers/designers got to work on creating mobiles. First they thought about a memory or story they wanted to share. Next they drew pictures relating to their stories and cut out images and words to hang on the mobile. They wrote about their story on the base of the mobile and strung on the pictures. The results were outstanding! One student wrote about learning to sew with her Grandmother, and another about his father teaching him how to goal tend.
I was most excited about sending kids home with these demonstrations of their thoughts, feelings, and appreciation for loved ones.
