Clever Kids and Proud Mother
May 6th, 2011 by Craftylocks

Although this blog is to share lots of paper craft ideas for other folk to try with their children, sometimes my children make me so proud with their creations in different areas that I want to share it anyway. So my apologies for this brief digression from paper crafts, they will be back real soon!

Our children have started to go to a different school from their usual one, just for one day a week. At this school they get to explore and develop concepts more deeply. On their first day they were exploring identity – their creative responses are below.

Unique and Alone
I am unique
I cannot be cloned
I’m alone in the universe, alone.

But alone has its upsides
It’s useful and cool
If someone tries to copy me they end up looking like a fool

No one is identical to me
No one has my hair, my hands, or my face
No one has my determination to win a race
No one can react the same way I would
No matter how hard I try I’m never fully understood

Only I like this music,
And that activity
Only I have my responsibility

I try never to copy
Other people’s actions
Because I know I’ll never do it to exact exaction

No one can copy me
No one, never
And that’s how it will stay forever and ever

I am unique
I cannot be cloned
I’m alone in the universe, alone.

The poem is by an 11 year old and the self portrait is by a 9 year old.
