I am near the end of my first student teacher conference and I can say that I truly enjoyed having an opportunity to meet my students families. There is nothing better than gaining the support of parents, grandparents, and guardians. We all want what is best for our students and when we work together to support them, only then do they truly know that we have their best interest at heart. I love seeing the faces of students when they figure that out. It doesn't happen every time but it happens more times than not. It truly does take a village. I am thankful to play a role.
Over the last week, my middle school students were recently introduced to the work of Alexander Calder. For the past week students worked with wire to create contour wire sculptures based on his early works. In preparation for of this next lesson, as we are transitioning into the Kinetic art. I found this website and felt it was a great way for students to experience the many challenges that come when creating Mobiles.
