This is the chance for me to learn a new skill!
It may not be too useful but it has been something I’ve been wanting to learn for awhile now. For my learning project, I have decided to learn to fold origami. I know it might sound a little childish but I’ve always admired my older sister who can fold a bouquet of roses out of paper. And me, I can’t even fold a boat (which many people have tried to teach me). The only thing I am somewhat good at folding are paper planes (which my preschool students tell me I am extremely good at!).
With this learning project, I am determined to learn how to fold at least a few things like different animals, flowers, or boxes/containers. As I am a very visual learner, I am hoping to find some instructional videos on Youtube and easy to follow websites with step by step pictures for this project.
Although I can choose what I want to learn to fold and start with an easy origami design, I am a little worried that I am going to make the wrong folds and end up creating something weird. Oh well! Making mistakes is all part of the learning process.
I will keep you updated with my learning project as it goes.
