Esperanza Rising yarn fun at Mills Pond!

March 27, 2024

As part of an ELA unit of study, Mills Pond Elementary fifth grade students had an interactive experience reading the book Esperanza Rising.

Esperanza Rising is a heartwarming story of a young girl who learns the importance of love and sacrifice for family and friends.

In the book, young Esperanza gives her yarn doll to a girl on a train.

Inspired by that gesture, Mills Pond fifth grade teachers brought in lots of yarn for the students to make their own yarn dolls!
