Before the program, I was skeptical. How can you have so many children, at the same time, participating in an interactive program while maintaining control?
Well, Kyle Tiernan pulled it off! He really knows what he’s doing! I really liked how the students were completely and thoroughly engaged! This not only kept the focus on learning, but kept discipline issues to virtually non-existent! It was fast paced, my students definitely had to pay attention to keep up, but isn’t that part of the goal? They were so focused.
I liked how Kyle integrated math into the activities with lines shapes, points, etc. I also liked how he used and emphasized key vocabulary for this program. And with all the focus on content standards, the truth is that we just don’t have a lot of time for art, unfortunately. Kyle’s program gave them a meaningful art experience with cross-curricular benefits!
