Orchard Valley Waldorf School – Week 5
Since craft show season hit, I’ve unfortunately had to put some blog posts on the back burner.
I can now finally write about my last week at the Orchard Valley Waldorf School. Well, it wasn’t really the last week because they invited me back for two more classes (that will be another blog post).
In the fifth week, my students continued working on content for their five accordion-based structures.
On the last day, I planned for everyone to share their books at the end of class. That went out the window quickly.
I gave them a time by which they had to wrap up their work. They groaned. I gave them five more minutes. They groaned. Five more…you get the idea.
I couldn’t bring myself to stop them – they were enjoying themselves so much. The art therapist in me was having a hard time with bailing on the group process, but the artist in me said to let go. They’re just too darn cute.
I did get them to pose for a group picture at the last minute:
I was glad to hear from their teacher that they had really enjoyed the classes – I know I did. One of the students told me that she’ll be sending me images of her finished work, so I’ll post them when I get them.
