The Other VIP
Yep, Hot Rod got his turn at being the VIP in their First Grade class. Lil' Mermaid did hers the week before Spring Break and Hot Rod got to do his the week they came back to school. I was surprised at how patient he was and how he did not complain that she got to go first.
He was actually a little easier for me to work with on putting the whole thing together. I guess I should say that he was just a bit more decisive. Some of his answers made me crack up though.
His favorite foods: Chili Pasta Brussel Sprouts (he seriously put this himself) Watermelon Ice Cream
When he grows up he wants to be: a carpenter ("like Papa and Jesus" he says) and a Scientist.
If he had 3 wishes: He would wish for 100 lego sets To see aliens To have his own pet dragon
Things he likes: Hot Rods Bugs Black Widows Art Vikings Volcanoes Crocheting (he put this in at the end and was very upset that he had forgotten it!)
Things he doesn't like: Cleaning Getting in trouble Getting hurt Bullies Bloody Wounds Cactus
I was lucky enough to be able to be in the classroom when he went over his poster with the whole class. I was alternately shaking my head in disbelief, laughing, and marveling that this child had sprung from my womb. His descriptions of all his photos were too precious for words.
(The VIP with a groupie.)
I think this is such a fabulous idea for young kids to do in the classroom. As a parent, I always check out each new poster every week and love to learn something new and fun about the classmates of my children. And putting the posters together with my own kids was priceless. I love hearing what they think about themselves and learning about what they value as little people.
Maybe we should all do a VIP poster for ourselves once in a while.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
