As to the rushing the kids part, how about a come-back along the lines of "I
want the kids to use the instructional minutes to make art. That's why
clean-up is quick"

Subject: How do the kids know art is over?
What do you all say to the kids when art is over? Today my principal
walked to observe me and she didn't like me saying "CLEAN UP TIME!!" She
thought I rushed the kids too much. She suggested clapping three times.
(huh?) What do you say when it's time to clean up and scram? Thanks
