A child is waving a wet paint brush in the air, the teacher should:

1. tolerate the behavior as an
expression of childhood exuberance.

2. remind the child of the rules in
the art center.

3. use this situation as an
opportunity to teach splatter
painting.

4. consider this behavior a creative
use of the materials.

Would #2 be the correct answer.
"Remind him of the rules"

correct. This is a safety hazard for the eyes of nearby students.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. It would be common sense to select #2. With #1 and paint on the brush there could be eye damage. Number 3 is an excellent option AFTER disruptive behaviour is controlled. #4 and if the paint is directed toward a "canvas" it could be creatively creating a splatter painting!
