Today was funny in a weird way! I had to substitute in grade 1! It was the first time I deal with 5 to 6-year-old kids in large numbers and at the same time!!! It’s true that my kids are almost in the same age, and I’ve experienced most of what I saw today, but the situation was way different, say 15 times more complicated 😀

The fun part of it was sharing nice stories and drawing about them! The kids showed a lot of talent and creativity! Their imagination was so wide, their spirit so pure, and their heart so innocent! All they needed as reward was a high-five, a smiley face, and a “Bravo” or “Amazing” or “Super cool” or the like.

The “weird” part of it sounded like this: “Miss, he pinched me in my arm” “He started, he pinched me first in the butt” ” Noooooo he did it” “Miss miss, tell them; they won’t give me the marker” “He didn’t ask for permission” “I asked but they don’t like me, NOBODY LIKES ME” “because he nags” “No because you are mean” “See why we don’t like him” “Miss miss can I go to the toilet; it’s urgent” “Miss I need to go to the nurse because my tooth will fall soon” “NOISE NOISE stop stop noise noise miss let them stop” “Miss can I write who’s talking on the board” ” I want I want” “Can I draw on the board” “See what I drew” “MIIIIISSSS tell him to stop!!” “Miss tell me, can I write who’s talking on the board” “Tell him to give me the blue marker” “Noise Noise miss tell them to stop” “Can I go to the nurse, he poked me” “He gave my friend a sticker and didn’t give me” “because you poked me” “that’s because you didn’t give me the sticker” “You started” “No you started”….

Well, the fun part of that weird part was that the above was just a part of only ONE conversation involving half of the class 😀

Shahrazad Zare is a 15-year-old Iranian young lady, who never keeps raising the bar for herself. Her determination to improve and succeed is phenomenal, and her beautiful spirit is exceptional. Shahrazad has a lot of talents, among which is drawing. She’s sharing with us today one of her favorites drawn last year. When I asked her about her beautiful drawing she said, “Well, whenever I look at her I see a woman who has done a lot in her life. She has had a lot of experiences; sadness, happiness and of course problems. But she has risen again and left everything behind. I now see a person in a very lofty position of her personality. I’d like to call her ‘Lofty Personality’.

 Enjoy 🙂

When asked to draw their families, kids usually draw silhouettes of different sizes, depending on the image of each member of their family in their eyes and minds. However, 6-year-old Lebanese Kera Assaad had something else in mind! Kera is an exceptionally smart, sensitive and creative little angel; she has her own magical world where love prevails and kindness reigns! Kera was able to think outside the box and draw her family the way she saw it, and not the way people would expect her to draw it. She drew from her heart the family closest to her heart!

Enjoy!

15-year-old Emarati Buthaina Galadari is confidently walking towards realizing her dreams and passions. One way of expressing her feelings, thoughts, and dreams is drawing. “Hidden in Dreams” is a beautiful portrayal by Buthaina, who was inspired by a picture of a woman she once saw. She calls it Hidden In Dreams “because of the blackness around the girl that looks like she is completely lost in thought…”

Enjoy!

Some people are just special and talented! Check out Martina Nutricato’s new contribution.

Martina says, “I call it ‘Hidden’ because in my drawing I wanted to show what is under the veil of every woman, which is much more than anyone else could actually see.”

Beautiful job Marti!
