Let the Light Shine In

Just outside our classroom, across the street, one of my students father has been working on the neighbor's roof. So in an effort to prevent the little boy from parking himself in front of the window and looking longingly for a glimpse of his Daddy, we decided to create something beautiful that would block the view but not the light. This is what we came up with.

It is so very beautiful and was quick and easy to create. I imagine that with older children, the designs would/could become more deliberate and representational.

I'm home from school today because I have scratched cornea ~ OUCH ~
Be careful in the sandbox!

How sweet... my heart just breaks for the little boy searching for his daddy... so kind of you for getting his mind off it with your lovely, colorful mosaic. Hope your eye is feeling better.

I came across ur blog and I do not see an email address for you so I AM sending it in ur comment box. My 4 1/2 did her 1st year in traditional preschool and is now ending her 2nd year of pre school but this was her 1st year in Waldorf education. I would like your thoughts on Waldorf education and if you know any other families whoes children are in Waldorf education. I was sitting on the fence about Montessori and Waldorf and she 'picked' Waldorf as I too had a much better feel for the Waldorf and have been failry happy with Waldorf thus far. As Mother's we always try to do the best and make good choices for our children and thier futures :)
It seems as each school has their own twist, from school to school - state to state...which is fine but confusing for those begining on this journey of education for our children....any thoughts as this is your profession and a Mother....Thank you, Molly
you can email me at

What a great idea! I have wonderful, big, sunny windows in my room. At 2:30, when the buses start rolling in front of my window, they get all the attention. Short of pulling down the blinds, I hadn't thought of a little stained glass magic! jan

Where in the World?
