Rathfarnham Educate Together: Session 4. Developing our Shadow Monsters

The children were keen to meet my monster puppet again and discovered it had learnt a little english. We tried to teach it some of the other languages we had in the classroom too.

In discussion after the last session, their teacher Margaret and I had decided to return to the shadow monsters, this time giving the children a chance to prepare themselves first by discussing ideas and collaborating to draw a plan of what they would do.

Then each group came up in turn to show the others their creation, to move a little and vocalise. Again we photographed each in turn.

After the session Margaret and I discussed the creation of an evaluation sheet which she will get the children to do as part of their literacy work during the week so that we can get an individual response from each, as to what they have enjoyed and where they might imagine going from here.
