I hope you are not the only adult in the room with 50 kindergarteners. If
that's not illegal it should be and I'd b**** until they atleast got me some
assisstants.
(Even 3 or 4 older grade kids would be better than no one.) In the fall, break
kindergarten art up into 10 minute segments- a story related to the art
concept, movement activities related to the concepts that day, 4 or 5 minutes
of direct instruction and then the rest of the time for using art materials.
This has worked well for me. Also- do you know all of their names? My
knidergartners love to begin with name games- the simplist of which you just
go around the circle and clap a rhythm, have the child say their name to the
rhythm and then everyone repeats their name to the same rhythm. It helps focus
their attention And you'll learn their names. Good luck, mail me if you want
to know any more, I love kindergarten art.
