Brilliant B has been taking two online classes since the beginning of December. One class was about Christmas symbols and the other was about New Year’s traditions around the world. They were a great addition to our curriculum because they provided a fun break during a busy and stressful season and also allowed me to have the time I needed to focus on the end of the semester with my university students. It was also fun for her to have kids from all around the world in class with her. I even learned something about how the kids respond to different teaching methods online and how I may be able to use some of that as I start to develop my own online courses.
Neither of us really knew a thing about lapbooks before the start of these courses, so that was also part of our learning process. B was eager to show off the finished products after her final class today.
