Hello all it's been a while since my last post, too busy it seems that June barely started and here it is almost Canada Day! Will someone please take their foot off the gas pedal and slow us down a bit the speed as to which time flies by is making me dizzy!!
This weekend was a very fun weekend for everyone especially the students who went home with a brand new dress to wear! The task was to cut, mark, sew, fit and wear a dress home by Sunday and guess what they did it!
I pulled a fast one on them by not sending a syllabus to them beforehand as is the norm, I told them that (insert any lame excuse) for this reason all they need to know is they will be cutting and sewing. In fact I knew exactly what the learning objective and work was going to be but felt if I sent them the syllabus they would be stressing over it and in the end be paralyzed with fear. So I sprung it on them at the beginning of class, this is what I wrote on the board not mentioning the fact they also needed to cut the dress out that day as well!:
