Here are a some Students Testimonials:

What I learned with Creative Minds two weeks ago, we had to write a report on vacation to any place in the world and my group “BLUE Point” chose California and that’s pretty much it…. Gooed Soto

I learned to always have a Back-Up plan and to stay organized in problems. Learned to work with others. Thank you, Dymone Scott

What I learned with this program is speaking out loud and communicating with each other, and not to be afraid of talking to a person and scared to ask questions. The main thing is not to be afraid to do anything and to speak out loud!!!! Kenyon Porter

I learned in Creative Minds, Mrs. Kammerer tought us how to: REPORT, have FUN, Relationships and more. Mrs. Kammerer taught us something we can use in our lives. So this is the end. I had been taught a lot, so I had a fun time and this is it….Time for 6th grade!Davon Stovall

TRAVELING with Mr. Billy Green – The Seal

Improvisation Skills program for students ages 5 – 11 @ Easton Library, Easton, Ct. Assistent to KES, Inc. program: Sophie Malin- Student Age 10

 

 

 

Image by Artist Arthur Gerstein – Billy Green , the SEAL.  Norwalk Maritime Aquarium. Billy Green will live forever and was a terrific ‘mind-opener’ for this project.

I always loved this large image , everytime I would see it, I felt, that I must give it ‘LIFE’ and somehow incorporate the image into my educational programs for students. Sure enough, Mr. Billy Green was ‘activated’ in my mind and heart and off we went………Traveling with Mr. Billy Green, the Seal.

We had about 13 students in the class, ages 5 – 11 and the students were asked to invision traveling with the seal. So, personal experiences with travel, preparation time, financial means, destination, purposes + findings were all created by the students…..and they ended up being very specific(I asked them to be) about how they traveled ( by a red and yellow bus, to the next destination : “The Submarine Station”……and ended up on a Submarine, ( the driver requires a special license ,  one girl commented) to go diving for jewels.

The students finished the project in 90 minutes, discussed it afterwards within the team and each individual gave their opinions and findings. One student went around the circle as an interviewer. The students learned to bring their own life experiences into the project, their vision, creativity, decision making……and they had a heck of a time……when asked what they had in their ‘Treasure Chest’…..each student had the most incredible jewel findings, etc.

Absolutely adorable project and students. This was one of my projects from the HEART. Don’t take the voice of a child, they know what to do………

As the students were leaving to room,  I saw a satisfaction on each student’s face and happiness as well.  The project was not really about Mr. Billy Green, it was about activating the students mind, heart and creativity to built  a  story , a happening with real life experiences  to build their confidence and LIFESKILLS.

CHEERS!

‘SUMMER CAMP’ Team Building Skills  in Easton, Conn. 2016

 

 

 

This project in 2016 was a 60 minute program with approximately 45 children, devided into teams. Each team had to come up with: team name,  a specific theme relating to a team member life experience ( their own story and it was voted on by the team who’s story would be most interesting, to built into a theme)

It required : speed, sharing thoughts + experiences quickly and each team leader had to present their stories infront of everyone at the end. It was voted on how had the best story……everyone was a winner at the end. I was helping each team along to get started , to encourage, to give directions and motivation, but also very focused.

It was quite an exercise kids are not used to being on a timeline and experiencing the results as well. To keep 45 students excited for 60 minutes straight – I did it, and they love it.

In all my work, I place timelines and results. That is an excellent skill and mind-set to have and teach. CHEERS!
