The Blah Blah Oops! happened one too many times in my classroom so I finally sat down and wrote a little song and animated this little (51 sec) movie to help solve the problem. Concentrating on what you're doing is a universal life skill and not just an issue in the art room. This little movie quickly reinforces the idea that good work takes all your thinking.
My students now whisper to each other during class to stop talking so they don't have a "Blah Blah Oops!"
The video download is in an MP4 format that can be dropped into a powerpoint, played full-screen using iTunes, shown in Quicktime Player, an/or uploaded to your website. Please ask me questions if you have any troubles or concerns. Thanks.
