“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.”
— Mitsugi Saotome
cos i'm being let loose on a class of six year olds over the next two mondays to teach painting. ha!
and the last lesson plan i wrote was - oh - about twenty years ago.
so the one i conjured up last night on 10cm square paper looks like this:
*ahem* not very h'official-looking.
get this though -
when i were a lad i lived in cardboard box i' middle o'road - when i was last teaching a class of six year olds, there were 36 of the little dahlings. this class has 21 - and the beautiful teacher has offered to do a switcheroo - she teaches half of them maths while ten kiddos and i throw paint around the classroom and then we do a swapsie.
looks like i won't be needing my arnie moves then.
