Woody, You are so right. I remember a student from a couple of years ago
(3rd grade, clay dinosaur sculpture) who kept telling me he was 'done'; I
kept telling him 'your sculpture is not done!' This went on for the full
hour. These sculptures were entered into a contest at the Museum of Natural
History here in Norman, OK. End of story, his sculpture won a first place
ribbon! I told him it should be mine. Needless to say, all the students in
his class were impressed, and I always refer to that incident when they dare
to suggest that they are 'done.' Linda W.
