It's Still a Wonderful World Whether Your in Grade One or Not.


Kraftwerk- Teacher Lars Reimers Grade One Class Performs Die Roboter Techno Pop Song From 1978


 As the "adults" it's easy to can get caught up in all the seriousness of art, or lost in it's arty discourse and problematic issues.

Amid so many heavy events our world, it's real important to take a time out, and to simply allow ourselves to experience some childlike joy. After all, this is a big and important part of what the creative process is about. That's just what this you tube video is, joyful, and I think you'll agree.

 The video reminds me to relax, have some fun, daydream, and live in the moment, which are the helpful tools for creativity.
It's still a wonderful world, not in spite of itself, but because of it's self. Take time to celebrate it. Kids can really help us to do this. I loved it when that one kid stands up to bust a move! So much fun! And learning should be fun!

That was wonderful! And I heartily agree: when work has lost its joy, it just becomes drudgery and little else.
