It's good to be organized, makes everything go so more smoothly! Can you tell me about using foil to mix on? Do you wrap it around anything for stability? I think it would make clean up easy, is it more economical than throw-away paper plates?
So, this is very interesting to me. I am always the one preparing paint and set-up. I've never considered having the kids be in charge. Is this what you do for every grade level?
All students get their own paint and paintbrush- I still deliver water buckets to K-1 tables. They share water, towel, and mixing palette.I just today replaced foil with magazines- they mix on the top page, then tear it off & toss at the end of class-free! I think that idea came from www.theartofed.com
The individual paint cups with lids are saving my sanity- I can usually save the paint by scooping some out if a little of another color gets mixed in - if not, I'm only rinsing out a little paint to replace, rather than washing 24 trays, managing an insane sink, or tossing way too much unused paint. Our foodservice director ordered them for me- 2oz soufle cups with lids!
