MCBA-Tom Spence-3 hours

MCBA This week was another book structure, the pop-out book. The students were 3rd graders and there was a different dynamic. Since they were older instructions were given 2 or even 3 at a time. Sometimes they could follow through but often many needed reminders. I was helping Tom but another teaching artist, Cindy was doing the same book structure in the next room. It was her first time teaching that book, although she had done similar stuff before. I loved how she just jumped in although others offered to do it for her. I feel like a lot of teaching is about being as prepared as possible but rolling with anything that may come up. 

Next week I'm teaching at Perpich so there will be a bunch more to report!
