Pick a Prop and Strike a Pose!

Props on stick are in fashion these days. Good for me! I get to try new ideas and people are happy with their props. 😉

I loved making these props. Though I did not get to keep much of them but still, when people accepted them with open hands, I was super excited 🙂 . I made face masks, dialogue balloons, mustaches, glasses, pirate hats, monster mouth and Dracula teeth (my favorite).

Montessori Training-Projects

In this post, I am going to share some of the projects with you that me and my fellows had the experience to make, in our Montessori training. The time to decide ‘what to make’ was kind of hard. We had to choose something different, something that has not been done before, something ‘zara hut ke‘… I don’t think so, we quite reached up to all that, but  we tried our hardest and we gave our best. The rest we left to Allah.

With all the tough routine, exams, quizzes, assignments, practicals, 4 art folders  (did I miss something…) ah yes, cultural files. :), no doubt, it was tough, but we learned numerous things. We not only learned about how to teach and groom children but also how to groom ourselves. Montessori training is not just for children but for you too. Time consuming plus mind consuming 😉 but  worth it.

Back to projects. Submitting these projects was not the end, we were to give presentation (no big deal with that), but we were to give it to an empty class, full of nothing but projects. And we had to pretend that we were giving the presentation to a bunch of children (asking questions, getting answers, all on our own). Of course our teacher was there, marking us, while we were making a fool of ourselves.

You must be waiting for the projects, so here it goes:

Lets start with my project. ‘3 DIMENSIONAL SHAPES’. I enjoyed a lot, working on this project. Making and finding the 3 dimensional shapes, around the house was quite a fun game for me. 😉

Here is a visual view of all the projects, starting with mine:

I am going to end this post with my personal favorite project. ‘THE WESTEND BAKERS’. I tried to capture it from all angles. Now this is what you can say a ‘zara hut ke’ kind of project. Look at the detailing, the small cute things, aren’t they adorable?

Have a look from other angles:

Hope you like the post and that it gave you ideas to make some of your own. Just remember to make the presentation interesting and catchy so that the children not only learn things but also enjoy it to the fullest. This way you will have your full satisfaction too.

Wish you the best. Good day.

“MIRACLES”

GIRL WITH THE GREEN BOOK

Miracles are not always loud and close.

Not always mountains that crumble to the ground
or ships that sail with high winds against them.

No, no, no.

In all actuality, miracles are often found
sipping coffee in the background
as you scream and fight with your fate.

They are waiting for you to stop for a moment and look around.

And many a times, they come to you
but you are too large-eyed to look at something that seems so small.

Your belittling drives them away.

But friend, if only you knew how many miracles touched you
on just how many rainy days;

you would not have been feeling so alone.
There just was no way.


Somewhat poetic, somewhat random. Mostly just fragments from a coffee-driven brain. ^-^ Hope you liked it!

Is This Life Yours?

They tell you, you are good for nothing,

Are you going to believe them?

They tell you, this is not your path to walk on,

Are you going to step off?

 

This is your life,

And you hold the key to your own door.

The path is going to be bumpy,

Warn you, you might get scratched on the way.

 

It is not going to be easy,

Finding your footing in this big, big world.

But I can tell you this,

It will be worth it.

 

So, princes and princesses

Are you going to let people take away your crown,

Or are you going to chin up and wear it like you’re meant to be?

Your choice.

JJJ

Wear your crown right, try not to let people bring you down and make you stray from achieving your goals and dreams.
