When I was given the task of teaching using electricity as a theme I was ecstatic!! We built so many light bulb circuits we nearly lost count, the poems, history and even geography of the theme was as easy as a simple circuit. What cut my flow of electricity was art.
I left it til the night before and just surfed the net, it took me hours to get an idea, mainly because of the poor connection here in Tipp South.
But to make matters worse I was given the strand of fabric and fiber in art.
I was looking at Albert Einstein’s picture and it hit me. Why not try to use
different types of material to make a montage of his face. After buying a net tablecloth, towels, ribbons, cotton, and some old strange fabrics I found at home I cut them all into little pieces and was heading to bed as the sun came up. (And people say teaching is easy!)
The result, amazing! I took pictures, but lost them all when that over-used laptop broke. Why am I telling you this….well to share his quote:
‘It’s not that I’m so smart. It’s just that I stay with problems longer.’

Thank you so much for your comment, it means a lot.
Agree with Xavier! I think you're amazing teacher, Michelle. And that idea with Einstein is great indeed.
There are three types of teacher Michelle. The ones who complain, the ones who explain and the ones who inspire. You are obviously a source of inspiration to the children in your care. Good on you!
