Awful origami

origami ducks

The origami got me in trouble, but it wasn’t the ducks’ fault.

What do you do when something cool morphs into something different that takes over the class and disrupts absolutely everything, including basic things, like cleaning up after lunch, and working? The children started making those little folded things that you write numbers on and play a game, and under each tab is a fortune, or a command- you know what I mean. It was out of control. My ducks seemed so boring after that.

Oh, well.

My plans for the weekend include welcoming the woman coming to teach the 0-3 course (and who will be my housemate), making geometry command cards and math word problems big and exciting enough for the long bead frame and the checkerboard.
