The Kobuk Middle School students are published authors!
Teacher Ms. Harken reported that Kobuk students recently completed and published books using a website called Bookemon.com for their writing class. Their books are written in a combination of English and Inupiaq languages and showcase some of the Inupiaq vocabulary they have learned through their Inupiaq course taught by Lena Tickett. The students enjoyed writing and creating their books online and look forward to seeing them in print. They worked really hard on this project and would like to share their books with the school district, please visit www.bookemon.com and type in Inupiaq in the search box to read their books. The titles include, The Pinasrut Tuttut by Samantha Horner and Makayla Ward, The Hungry Wolf Pack by Angline Custer and Inupiaq Food by Ally Schaeffer and Blanche Sun, Arctic Animals by Peter Garfield and William Gooden, Igliguan Riders by Dustin Harvey and Henry Garfield.
