teaching to sew

Well, I got through my first session of teacher aiding quite well. The children are a delight and the felted pencil cases they are creating are coming on well. All I needed to do here was help with the odd tangled thread and show how the zip went in. I could get to like this teaching lark.

For what its worth, these are a very clued up bunch of 7 to 9 year olds - boys and girls. The next session is on Thursday. Most should have their cases finished by then as they have been making them for several days now. Then I get to teach them how to knit. They get to call me Aunty Vivien because I probably won't answer to Mrs or Ms (insert surname). Just not me.
