Cutting Day

Today we made the handprint reindeer with the triangle head shape and handprints for antlers. If you are a regular reader you know that I mentioned before how my class was having trouble cutting objects out. So, today I actually had some time to see what might be the problem. My finding, they are nosy. As I sat with each one to see how they cut the triangle out, I noticed watching where they were cutting was of least importance. There were only a few that still had trouble with the open/shut movement, but more than a few that had trouble with the focusing on the skill at hand.

So, if anyone has any ideas, please feel free to share. Thanks.
