At this time, it is still a little hard to guage where we are going or what we should do with the students. Sole's thought of a journal is a nice idea. This week we may have the same students, we could have more, or we could have less. It would be hard to determine how much art supplies we should bring. I think we all agree that the children should do something this week. If they don't, they may start to lose interest in belonging to our club. Unfortunaltely, no amazing ideas are coming to me. I've been thinking about it over the weekend, but haven't come up with anything clever enough. If we helped the children create journals this week within our 1/2 hour time slot, we can ask them to draw pictures/write journal entries during the next week as to what their hopes/dreams are, what they want to be when they grow up, their favorite things to do, etc. Not sureif this is really what we are going for with this project, but it's at least something fun they can do.
And don't worry, last semester it took quite some time for some of the kids to open up to us!
