Eight kids today. We discussed various types of homes, and different countries and climates. The kids chose one, and them they each made a large accordian style, shape book in that home style. They created landscaping, and people, and animals from paper and added it to their homes. We spent the full two hours, with most kids not finishing completely. Fun project.

Thirteen kids in class today. They finished up their puppets from last week, and then we did a puppet show.
In most cases, the puppets were to depict what the kids want to be when they grow up. He's working on his 'video game designer' puppet.
I had the kids draw their puppets, and then on the back, write down the personality traits or characteristics.

Here's Tuesday's class of 8 working on puppets. The theme was decided by the kids, and they chose to make puppets that reflected what they wanted to be when they grew up. We'll finish the puppets next week, and do an inclass puppet show.

Another holiday week, so we had a mix of Tuesday and Thursday kids for a total of 9 kids. We made little people Flat Pack Toy Design. First the kids made themselves, then some kids made one of their parents, or another person. One kid made a squirrel and the other a rabbit. It was a good lesson, since they learned to build 3-d objects.
