Hi Ricki, Try simplifying your lessons. Pre-cut what you can, (if they
are making something that cutting is not part of the lesson) reduce
number of steps. I also teach 25 kinders at a time, and there are a few
who are either not ready to be in a school environment, or are having
difficulties for other reasons. Not all students will acheive your
expected outcome. Be very clear about your directions and model the
behavior you are looking for( meaning, show how to hold and cut, or
match corners and then pinch the fold..etc.) I might start by looking
briefly at a visual, ask them a couple of questions, and then move on to
the production part after demonstration. I allow plenty of time for
clean-up and try to put the nix on too many bathroom breaks. I might
read to them if there is time left, or review the color wheel. "I like
the way table 2 is working quietly and hard." is what I say to TRY to
keep them focused. .(works pretty well)
Hope this can help, Betsy I have them for 45 min
