My Bunso is excited for Wednesday. He cannot wait for his teacher’s reaction as he submits his Computer project. Their teacher required them to draw a computer keyboard and name its parts. The teacher encouraged them to make their project very creative and unique.
Bunso’s computer project —
Good things this mother kept their old malfunctioning keyboard. When husband told her to dispose of the old keyboard, she kept it, almost certain that they could use it in the immediate future for any of the boys’ school projects.
When she showed it to bunso, he jumped for joy. He was so excited to start with his project.
First, the mother and son went to ACE Hardware and bought a silver acrylic spray paint. They preferred the spray paint over the brush and can of paint as they assume the former offers a more even coverage. Also, spray paint is a hundred times faster than paint brushing. Not to mention that it dries faster and clean up is quicker with no more brushes to rinse.
The two decided to spray paint the keyboard to give it a new look and identity. Also, with a new gloss coating, Bunso could write on each key and scribble anything he would like to make his keyboard attractive and unique.
To properly label the parts of the keyboard, bunso used a color coding system. He mentioned to his mother that the human eye could read colors more quickly than words. He assigned, for instance, color green for “numeric keypad” and enveloped the numeric keypad part with green ink. For the label, he also used the same color as his markings on the keyboard.
This mother is also excited for Wednesday. And she can’t wait to go home to hear her Bunso’s very detailed kwento.
* (August 2014) I compiled and will share some of the school projects made by my boys in order to help other students with their research. It has always been this momi’s intention to offer help the best way she can.
