BEFORE I hand out supplies, colored paper, etc. there's a little chant I say
and the kids now repeat it aloud..."You get what you get and you don't get
upset." This way no ones even dares ask for a color they "want". Of course,
the kids have choices to make, but sometimes there are situations where you
need to control amd just don't have time for the bickering.
