Cut Paper

The title links to the absolutely incredible paper cut art of Peter Callesen, but I just wanted to share what my third and fifth graders have been up to: tunnel books and accordion books, respectively. I decided to really work on those small motor skills of cutting and gluing, not to mention the spatial/motor skills involved. Everybody sort of groans when they see the construction paper being pulled out (myself included), but then, as three-dimensional demonstrations with each class get underway, I've even gotten applause from the students! Yes, a lot of fun can be had with our old standby, paper, if everything in the curriculum is scaffolded and supported right. Check them out....
