Overview

Art Activities A to Z gives teachers and parents a detailed lesson plan format of open-ended, age- appropriate art activities for young children ages one and up. The activities are easy-to- understand and follow for children and adults alike. Each section helps teachers and parents find art activities to support a theme-based curriculum, to incorporate a letter of the week, or to provide a spur-of-the-moment filler idea. Many activity choices are given for each targeted alphabet letter. This child-centered text focuses on art as a process rather than as a product, giving children an appreciation for learning and creating. The author makes certain that teachers, parents and children will enjoy the activities as they explore medium beyond paint and brushes.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I like the concept of offering open-ended projects that apply teaching the alphabet. This is an excellent outline and offering it in a lesson format is a great idea.
