The grade 4 Partridges (we use bird class names) are nearing the end of their 3D Lettering Project. Here they are working with pencil crayons, glitter kokis and cutting out. Learning the difference between pattern, decoration and texture can be tough at first. Those who need a stretch learn about simple and complex patterns too. There is some lovely work coming out today.
I love the way I feel less stressed at the beginning of terms. It makes for far smoother classes and a relaxed feeling when I go home. I love my kids and want to help Each one with their creative struggles. It leaves a teacher sapped to be so stretched.
