Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding YAWN! A Retelling From The Napping House - Section 2: Procedure


With so many school cutting their art programs (mine included), if classroom teachers don't add art to their lists, there are some children who will never have an appreciation for art.  I can really begin to see the difference in my students in the three years that we have not had art.  They have less refined cutting and coloring skills, very little drawing perspective, and less vocabulary to talk about the pictures.  I try to use the illustrations of the books I am using in my language arts lessons to teach some art appreciation.  This is why I spend some time talking about the illustrations and how they influence the story.  In some situations, we will try to model our projects off of the illustrator's style.
