Hi Linda. I also teach art to K -6 graders and I also do a shape and
texture rubbing lesson with K thru. 2nd graders. But I use 18" by 24"
manilla construction paper as its a little stronger and doesn't tear quite
as easliy as the newsprint stuff, yet its still thin enough for picking up
the textures and outlines of pre-cut geometric shapes and leaves and
'other stuff' I also use Sanford Plastic-Crayons as they already come
without paper and they are a bit harder than regular crayons and they last
several yrs. I didn't need to order any this year as the ones from last
year still have alot of mileage left. Suggest you loo into these. They
come in 18 or 24 color sets. I think the 24 color sets are the better
