It's not often that I would include my children in a post. Today however I feel the need to share what it's like living in a creative household. Today I came home to my girls having re-arranged many of my Christmas decor to suit their own vision.
My twin girls are identical. They look exactly the same but are completely different personalities. They are both creative and draw, colour or create in some fashion for a good two to three hours a night.Recently their teachers sent home their progress report. Although they are in the same grade they have different teachers and one child received all "G"s and one received all "S".(in Ontario, "S" means satisfactory and is one step above needs improvement)
This has prompted me to take a good look at how I can support creative learning in my house. When I was in school there where no teachers that supported my creative brain, most where overworked with giant class room sizes and could not accommodate the time required to fuel my creativity, they did the best they could.
Here is an exert from my 5 years old's progress report: "Ava needs to participate more actively in a focused manner. This includes taking the initiative to choose an optimal spot to sit in, facing forward, and listening attentively so she can be ready to try the shared learning activity."
I am the first to promote respect. I do however struggle with how this little "creative" can be herself while still obeying the traditional school structure. So, for now they are free to explore and be artists in design at home. I am so grateful to work among so many talented artists who also had the same struggles in school and who have made a successful career over standing out in the classroom.
Umm... I have to sit quietly and let them add these decorations in one giant CLUMP!
