So I was up to my ears in construction paper and art supplies today.
This is my pal Emerson. He's Visiting International Faculty and my ESOL co-teacher. We have had an awesome year together. I was blessed to have him. The kids adored him as well. For our last two days together, we decided to teach the kids about his country's favorite celebration- the Barranquilla Carnival.
And of course, most of my young ladies decided this is what they wanted to be. Emerson helped them make dresses out of pink art paper.
|Yes- this mess did give me hives. But I pushed through it. For the spirit of Carnaval!|
We had one hero sign up to be King Momo. He made a very good crown.
And only one signed up to be La Marimonda. His mask is excellent.
And everybody else either wanted to be Death or Joselito, the guy who dies from celebrating "too much". Go figure. But they are all happy and having fun, so then I'm happy too. I ended up helping these folks make vests out of large construction paper to decorate for their costumes.
Also, on my drive home from work, I think I figured out a better way to make those vests. I'll have to try it on another Monday.
And here- a final photographic montage.
I should have taken a picture, but they DID clean up every little bit afterwards and the room was pristine. They are good little moose, I tell ya. Tune in Wednesday for Parade pics!
Did you make anything? Link up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics!
What sorts of activities do you do for Global Awareness?
