While on recess duty today, I spied a big huddle of kids at the edge of the blacktop. Suspicious, I did my fastest teacher hustle over there and was relieved and delighted in what I saw: the boys & girls were working together to build a nest/ jacuzzi/ house/ ring of asphalt chunks complete with sticks, leaves and acorns. SWEET! Creativity, cooperation, & problem-solving at work! I felt like a proud mama bear.
I’m hoping this happy discovery becomes an everyday thing around CTK. I mean, I know these kids’ imaginations are out of this world- I just love catching them in action OUTSIDE the art room! So, I’m hoping this post is just the first in a series of Random Acts of Creativity!
PS- who says braids aren’t creative too?!
