We were watching Night at the Museum in a class I was subbing for and I was drawing Ben Stiller on my ipad and some of the third graders thought that it was pretty neat so I let them play with it and they colored Ben Stiller and gave him a cool Minions sweater.
I was watching The Hunger Games and I felt like trying a speedpaint. I love how that universe uses technology for silly fashion ornaments, so here is some sort of combination falsies/google glass type concept.
Today I was subbing at a Montessori school in a class with kids aged 2.5-6ish (they group together kids of a broader range of ages and abilities than traditional schools). One of the older girls was a little separate on the playground, crying because her friend wanted to play with another girl instead of her. A younger boy in her class cheerily approached, told her to “let all the sads out” into his cupped hand so he could get rid of them. She told him to go away and hid her face further into her knees. The little boy said “well I’m gonna do it anyway.” He then put his hands above her head, made a “shooop” sound, turned as if holding an invisible ball and tossed his hands away with a triumphant yell, commanding the sads to not come back.
She resumed playing with some other kids a short time later. The faith healing psychotherapy was a success.
