Now is the time I usually see my kindergarten students turning the corner! It is exciting for me as an art teacher to witness such a transformation....often from nondescript markings to beautiful works of art. They are doing so well at handling glue/scissors. Well...most of them. I heard yesterday I had an upset parent because their child has cut up their pants the past two times they've had art. I'm assuming it was done in my room, but I did not see the "crime". There are 21 students in the class...the tables are not made of see through glass....and they are required to stay in their seats. So I did not see it happen..or the aftermath of. I honestly can say I've not had a student do that in my 16 yrs of teaching. I've had them cut themselves, trim their hair a little...but never cut up their pants/shirts. Hopefully this will not happen anymore....I've been going over scissor safety/rules with every class.
