Do you have a cute song?
Or do you make a visual picture (put your arm up like a tree and root your elbow to the table.)
Do you demonstrate?
Do you even give them real scissors to practice for the first time?
I teach this every year, but every year I'm shakin' in my boots as I sing my silly song and leap across the room to make sure little freshy doesn't give herself a haircut.
My first year teaching in middle school I found an entire part of a weave cut off and on the floor. Later that year a girl asked to go to the bathroom and came back with trimmed bangs, for the record she went a little too short with them. She must've snuck them in her pocket. But I've come a long way from those good ol' days!
