Overview


Art is vital to learning experiences, and this book promotes the integration of art and children's literature. It helps improve student performance in other subject areas as well. It plays an important role in the curriculum .Often times talking with children about their ideas help to get them started on their own creative thought process. The activities in this book are directed which means that the activity is initiated by an adult, the materials are supplied and the topic is proposed. Each art lesson is combined with a children's book. The activities in this book guide children to a disciplined and discriminating approach to their art. Being exposed to art vocabulary will make it easier to find expression. The wide range of stimuli, materials and techniques presented will permit overall flexibility in a child's expressiveness. The primary goal is to focus on the process of creating. This book will aid in simplifying instruction and reducing the amount of preparation needed. Not only will it be extremely helpful to a new teacher, but it will also assist experienced teachers that are looking for novel approached to integrate art with other subjects.
