<< It just drives me crazy this "CUTE" word. The
kids sometimes use this word also to describe a work of art. I try to
encourage them to use other descriptive words when we look at a work of
art. How can we educated teachers along with the kids??? I put out
posters describing what the kids have been studying but to no avail.
They are still igornant. Help with the word CUTE!!!!

Dear Sandy,
I have learned to stop letting that bother me, and let people enjoy the
artwork hung up in the hallways. If a student in class says that something
is CUTE, THEN you can say, "Well, puppies and kittens are cute, but you LIKE
this? Why?" and help them with the correct descriptive words. :)
