We have just started to get closer to the kids and it is already the last day of classes!

Scratch– created the final game using all the skills that the kids learned all week
Tam Tam Jam– Held a dance/music contest and the winners are to perform in the finale tomorrow.
Record -Using the animal masks crafted the day before, the kids recorded skits about the animal’s behaviors and one of them represented an animal that acted “different” while incorporating the facial expressions and emotions we learned the previous day. We video taped all of the skits and will showcase them in the finale as well as in the exhibit back at CMU.
When it was time for us to go, we took many pictures and the kids asked for our emails so we could stay in touch with them. Tomorrow is the big finale where we will show the kids work process and final projects and we cannot wait!

We are half way through the week and we can already see the amount of progress we have made with the kids!

Today Record had the kids making animal masks as props.┬áThe kids were excited to act out their favorite animals and make masks. We also discussed how props can be used to express one’s self and that masks are a way to transform oneself.

Since we are only teaching grade 5 students, often times the younger students stand near the classroom door and outside the window to watch.
