    Whenever I do a craft involving cutting, I find myself, whenever possible, providing the materials in the form of a pattern for the kids to trace rather than printing something out for them. My reasoning is it saves copier drama and also encourages fine-motor skills, some of which students sorely need. Someone mentioned it's a little too old-school to do patterns these days. Thoughts?

    I don't think it's old school to have students work on fine motor skills.
