This week I am finally feeling more together!! I am caught up on my lesson plans for next week, my lessons for next week are preped, and I am feeling like I have a little bit of a routine. This week the the kids loved the farm animal drawings. I will post pictures later : ). I used the sheet blow as a guide for them. I have to thank thank the teahcer I did my student teaching under, she gave me this ditto about 10 years ago and I still use it! It is simple and perfect!! The kindergartners only did a pig scene, the first graders did an entire farm scene. My Second and fourth graders were inspired by Van Gogh this week. The 2nd graders did a drawing of sunflowers using craypa's and my 4th graders did one using water color crayons. The 3rd graders did Rain forest Tree's. The fifth graders are completed their second week of there Rouault's Royals:illustrating without a pencil . I am loving this lesson!! I cannot wait to see the finished product! Next week we start Halloween lessons!
As an Art Educator I wanted to create a blog that had links to site and blogs that I thought would be helpful to other art teachers. You will also find links to my weekly lesson plans. The lessons may have been created by me or they may be a twist on others teachers ideas. As Art Educators we all have the same goal ..to Make Art Work in the classroom! Enjoy and thanks for reading :)!
Art provides unique opportunities to explore and develop ways of knowing, doing, and being. As such, art, as a core subject, …is a critical component in the development of every child and in multiple ways permeates every aspect of human existence. –U.S. Department of Education
