Uncooperative materials + 20 kids working at once = epic fail
So far our plaster projects were going pretty good, until today. Today was flustering! Today was a kink in the hose. Today did not work. We tried. Those fifth graders were working so hard to do their cupcakes that refused to cooperate. The plaster was drying almost instantly. I knew it was hot in my room, but my goodness. They were trying to pour it into the cracks to get it to the bottom and it just did not work. So I am going to figure out Plan B. I think first will be a really fun painting lesson to make everyone feel better (me included), which can give me time to regroup and figure out how to make their lesson work. Because after all, what is art if not learning from mistakes and trying again. Maybe this was today's real objective!
