Pencil Pals: Dog

A fuzzy friend for your pencil!

Introducing Pencil Pals, a fun-tasticlly, fuzzy twist on traditional pencil toppers! Together we’ll make animal pipe cleaner creations designed to wrap snugly around the tops of our pencils. Not only will kids get to craft adorable animal companions, but they’ll have the chance to write about them too! We’ll follow Pixar’s storytelling structure to write stories about our animals & maybe even put them in a puppet show.

Katie Kennedy Learn more about me

They call me "Katie Educatie." Two of my favourite ways to spend my time are learning with kids and baking up sweet treats in the kitchen. If I were a dessert I would be a funfetti cupcake with ribbons of pink buttercream reaching for the sky! I have been an elementary school educator for a few years now and an avid baker all my life. Baking is an interesting hobby because you can view your creation as a work of art, a math equation and a science experiment that is (hopefully!) good enough to eat! If I were not a teacher, I would definitely have my own retro-themed bakery. I also love making music! I play piano, a little ukulele and am hoping to take up the kalimba one of these days. I enjoy creative writing and crafting with paint, thread, or string. My teaching background is in both Mathematics and English. I believe you can achieve anything you think you can. Some people say the sky is the limit. I say, if you give it your all, the limit does not exist.
