<< I also teach them how to move the
paper instead of their hands >>
This is important! I demonstrated how to "fragment" our Easter eggs today,
(ala "cubism" lesson!) and after I showed how to TURN the egg to cut a new
angle, there was great success. (K, 1st and 2nd) The funny positions and
contortions these kids can get into to cut zig zags is a laugh a minute!
Also, don't you love the ones who "chew" with their mouths as the scissors
open and close? (My husband does it too, when cutting! heehee)
