So the kids are working diligently on their projects even outside of class. There are a few teams of two and three and they are figuring out times to meet outside of class so they can continue to work on their project. I love it!!! Lots of thinking going on which makes me happy! 🙂
I had a student who was absent and I was finally able to get her project idea. She wants to learn how to decorate cupcakes. She loves cupcakes and has a few mentors in mind who can support her in this. I hope she brings in some samples!!! 🙂
Another students has been questioning her subject choice and asked if she could change it today. She has been waffling back and forth between a few ideas and I know that it has been frustrating her. This is OK as that is all part of the process of finding your passion. And it is not a problem to change the subject as we have really just begun the process and she has plenty of time to reach her goal. She was going to run a baton camp for kids, but determined that she would like to learn how to write calligraphy instead. Sounds like a fabulous idea to me! It is such beautiful writing and I know it requires a lot of skill and patience. I look forward to seeing how she accomplishes her goal.
More soon! Thanks for reading! 🙂
