Incidentally, something else I teach the younger kids is "no white paper
showing." I show lots of artwork to the kids. One thing I point out, in book
illustrations and in artworks, is that the artists' use the space fully (ie: no
big empty spaces). This has made a world of difference in the products I get
from my students, especially as they get older. But the little Ks will take it
very seriously and will remind each other ("I see white paper showing.") I also
get fewer single marks on paper, then wanting another paper. Helps my budget
go a little further.
I also use mis-copied papers from the copy room as "free-draw" paper.
