Back in the classroom

Boo's teacher last year, albeit with a post-marriage change of name, is now teaching Skibo.  As such, it was easy to organise an early origami visit to the class: I visited yesterday for a little over an hour, telling them Michael LaFosse's lovely little penguin and iceberg story, teaching them to fold the traditional peace dove, and then finishing, as is the constant request, with the story of the Captain's T-shirt.
I felt a little rushed this time: sixteen students, in groups of four, with a story first and another after, plus transitions, filled, and indeed slightly exceeded the time allotted.  But that was okay with the class, and the session was fun, and enjoyed by all.

Yours, loving the excitement in the first graders' eyes as they learn to fold,
