It is going to be my third lesson with the class and I have absolutely enjoyed myself so far. The children have learnt “hands” (lesson 1, hand portrait) and “fingers” (lesson 2, finger-printing) and are moving on to “feet”. “FEET”! For the life of me I just could not think of a good activity! What does a newly-reinitiated webbie do?
GOOGLE! What else? 😀
So to Google I went and found this slipper tutorial. What a fun thing to do! I thought to myself while clapping and cheering and dancing around the living room. Then I sobered up and started to prepare for the lesson. I made ready-cut templates and materials needed so that the activity can be carried out as smoothly as possible with a group of really young and enthusiastic learners. Thank goodness for all the materials I carted over from Singapore 🙂 With the templates cut, the children only need to decorate their slippers with finger-print art, a technique they learnt the lesson before.
Excitedly, I waited for my volunteer day at Sekolah Bisa. As with the other lessons, we had a blast! 🙂
Here are some photographs of the children at their creative best.
The kids are building on the finger-printing technique they learnt the week before, creating designs for their slippers. Kakak Bella helps Ramat who was absent last week and so didn’t learn to finger-print.
We ran out of time at the end of the lesson so I brought all the painted slippers back home to sew buttons on. This is what they look like.
All Done! Do look out for pictures of the slipper installation! 🙂
If you are smiling by now, you should be able to imagine the satisfaction I feel every Friday! 🙂
