Summer Camp is Off to a Great Start with Art Week!

No comments

Summer Camp has officially started with Art Week.  Over the past few days the CLC Campers did many art projects, including going to Art from the Heart Cafe and painting on ceramics for Father’s Day gifts.

The students also made their own t-shirts, sun catchers and clay creations!  

In addition to all of this, they also went to the local swimming pool and had a blast!  (Swimming is a weekly occurrence during Summer Camp!)

Next week is Games Week!  The CLC Campers will be going bowling, miniature golfing and playing a variety of games at the center.

The Art of Managing Middle School Students

No comments

Squirrels. That is what they remind me of. We were all that age once and we were all just like squirrels! Have you ever watched a squirrel? Zoom, freeze for two seconds, flick tail, and repeat. The trick for being a successful middle school teacher is holding their attention for more than just those few seconds. Believing that that is possible requires a huge leap of faith and trust.
