I teach middle school art and in one of my sixth grade classes of 25
students, I have one student who is labeled EMH and is unable to perform
even minimal tasks in art without help. I spend as much time as I can
spare with her during the class period, but she needs someone helping
her the entire period.

This nine weeks, the students have been working on geometric designs
using compasses and rulers. After that, they did a weaving project on
mat board, also using rulers to measure. For these two lessons, even my
other "low performing" students were able to produce SOME work. Now
we're on another lesson using rulers. This child can not use the ruler
to connect two dots...even when I stand beside and keep reminding her.

This child becomes very frustrated and at times I see tears. It bothers
me that I am unable to "reach her". Her teacher tells me that she can
do very little in the regular classroom.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions for something (pertaining to
art) that I can give her to do. How can I help her? I just can't give
a student a box of crayons and a piece of paper and tell them to color.
I would like to be able to "help" her in some way...whether it's using a
ruler or not.
