Reflection: Lesson Planning Idioms Crack Me Up! - Section 3: Idiom Project - Class Book


The students were overly excited about this class book activity.  When I asked them what made this project so exciting, the response was, "We finally get to do art!"  It is sad but true that we don't have a lot of time for art.  It was a gentle reminder that I need to work harder to incorporate art more frequently when planning our lessons.  I love art and even own a music and art studio where I teach music theater and art lessons to kids after school.  I know that the arts are an essential part of education.  Sometimes it is hard to fit it all in.  I resolve to do better!
