The “Virtual Museum of Monsters” project made in May its last coordination meeting. We met in Tremañes School (Gijón, Asturias, Spanish State). 18 teachers from 6 countries (Portugal, Italy, Sweden, Czech Republic, United Kingdom and Spanish State) made the final evaluation. In the evaluation process involving hundreds of children and families, and dozens of teachers from 6 countries.
The results seem very good. And we want to share with you.
Thank you all for your work.
The last coordination meeting of the project was held in Gijón 🙁
Schools painted fabric (2 x 1 m.) with Sendak tale scenes: “Where the wild things are”. Our friends gave the School Tremañes these wonderful fabrics. It’s a great gift. Now Tremañes School is a beautiful Museum, tribute to Sendak. We share these works of art with you all.
Thank you friends! I will always remember.
