Cartoons in the Art Room?

Someone asked about the reasons I post the Bugs Bunny cartoons and the like. I don't use them during class time for the most part.   My students dismiss from my classroom at the end of the day and the dismissal process takes about 15 minutes.  So, while the kids are waiting to hear their buses called, I show a cartoon.  They stay mostly quiet and that saves my sanity at the end of the day.

Once in a while, if my preschool classes finish  their work with too short an amount of time to do anything else, I might show one.  That way, when their teacher arrives at the door, they're calm.  We're not running around trying to gather up supplies.

Thanks for asking.
