Wendy and I decided that we were spending too much time talking on program! This can happen naturally on a program with the lead instructors. To balance this out we “lost our voices”. Then we split the kids up into a boys group and a girls group and gave the kids a scavenger hunt of sorts! We would not recover our voices until the tasks were completed!
The children were all nervous and excited at finding out this news! Over the course of a few hours they bonded strongly while working together and gaining some real independence! These kids are amazing and capable of great things when we give them a shot.
