I was so thrilled to see how creative some of them got. Things at school have been a little tense lately, and with this being exam week the kids have been pretty drained. It was so nice to let go and share a fun hour with them. It is such an indescribable feeling to wander around the room and share in the children´s joy for their work, and see how proud they are of their little masterpieces. I love getting to motivate and positively reward their bursts of creativity. They really impressed me with their opinions on what it means to neither harm nor destroy. Not having teaching experience I´m not sure what kids are supposed to be like at this age, but mine really never cease to amaze me. With the fourth quarter coming up I´ve been thinking about things I want to do with them before our year is over. I´ve been working more creative assignments into my plans for subjects other than art, but with the end of the year fast approaching I think we´ll be painting a couple times a week. Even my shy guys come alive with art projects!
