Beautiful Oops



Beautiful Oops

Read alouds aren't just for language arts classrooms. With the required literacy standards for content-area classrooms, all teachers are on the lookout for good reading material that fits their curriculum. Well, here is a recommendation for art teachers that fits the bill.

Everyone makes mistakes, but in art class, a blob of paint or a torn page can be traumatic. Students get upset or anxious when they accidentally glob the ink or rip their papers in the midst of creating something beautiful. Beautiful Oops is the perfect text to help relieve some of the angst from those foibles.
