Back for the second trimester!

Posted on: December 30, 2009

Okay, after a wee break, I am back and ready for more art, more kids, and more trash becoming treasure.

This trimester, each grade level’s art unit corresponds with something else that is already part of the curriculum to help support standards that are already being taught during class. I gave teachers a list of options culled from each grade level’s year long plan, and then picked the most popular topic for each grade. Fourth and fifth grade classes are all mixed at this particular school, so their unit will be the same.

Kindergarten: Plants (science)

First grade: Families (social studies)

Second grade: Letter writing (literacy – and it’s mail related, not forming text)

Third grade: Measurement (math)

Fourth/fifth grade: Colonial America/Revolutionary War (social studies)

Now to plan art lessons that touch on these ideas, along with incorporating creative reuse…
