I am so excited to share this project with you!
As you may know, our after-school program is for ages 4-8. However, this school year we added an age group(Muchachos). Three of our students turned 9 and 10 last summer and they wanted to continue with the program.
As the beginning of the school year was approaching, I began to panic…
My thought process:
“I’ve never worked with this age group in a classroom setting”
“Is our environment going to engage them”
“Are they going to be taller than me by the end of the year” JAJA = HAHA
I took a big breath and decided to let them lead and truly become a facilitator of their learning.
Yet again I have been overwhelmed by all the learning that is possible when we allow children to follow their interests and we truly respect their ideas.
The “Muchachos” made this video to explain their project and to invite you to become part of it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
