We are beginning to do a few art projects here abs there to get ready for our end of year art show. Cutting curved lines is not the easiest for preschoolers. It is an advanced skill. We will be cutting circles a few more times to complete a project.
Today one of our little guys said “look ! I did it .” Like a preschool ninja teacher who doesn’t want to make a child feel less or not good enough I exclaimed – “ You did. I wonder if the next time your scissors could cut on that line like a car riding a track ?” He smiled and he did it.
I don’t think Ive ever seen a more perfect circle! Sometimes littles need a tad bit of encouragement and direction but they can usually get where we are leading them. There’s always a way to do it that salvaged their self esteem. ❤️
