Our Lego class, taught by Crystal, (age 8) was a big hit today! She agreed to share her Lego Elves with us! Talk about cool. This particular set of Legos are so whimsical and brought many children to the table! Crystal’s outgoing personality and warming smile kept her students engaged and made them feel comfortable. One of her students stayed in class for over an hour and a half! At another table, Grace, (age 10) began her art class. She brought all of her own supplies and quietly taught by example as she worked away on her chipmunk. The students produced a dragon, an epic Lord of the Rings painting and a wolf.
You can be sure that good things are happening when the children bring their talents to share with the rest of the group. It inspires others to think about what class they might be able to teach. It also lends a great deal of confidence to the “student teachers.”
