Tomorrow I am making totem poles with my class.
This could mean one of several things:
A. I am still in the classroom
B. I must be crazy to give my children glue, glitter, feathers, markers, and scissors at one time
C. I am at my whit’s end to what to do with these children.
D. All of the above.
I love what totem poles represent. Each animal on the pole has a part in a story. That story must be passed down from generation to generation. I wish we still used them to teach our children. Tomorrow, my children will think of an accomplishment and create symbols (animals or not), and make his/her own pole. I am excited…and terrified.
