Art Lesson Plans at a Glance

This year I worked out, finally, how I would like to store and present my lessons and examples

1. A glance at the week followed by the actual lesson plan and standards with relatable books also in the sleeve.

2. In the back, dividers per grade level separating my teacher examples

Art Week 1

 This week has been just great! I decided to stay at Ross Elementary as a part time art teacher and intervention teacher. :0) Last week we looked and remember how we were all artists using inspiration from the dot. This week in art we are studying our face and we made a sketchbook today! This year will have a lot of writing! After being trained in dibels yesterday, I have an appreciation of what classroom teachers are responsible for teaching students. I encourage every art/related arts teacher to collaborate with their grade levels. I hope your year has started off on the right foot!



Nature's beauty to start of the Monday morning. The day was just awesome!

Free stuff to start of a Tuesday morning :0)

Sketchbook Ideas

A must do every year! Tape a large paper to the table and when Kinders finish with their project, they have something to keep them busy! One table, as you can see...loved it a little too much but hey that's what art is for...experimenting!!!




Sketchbooks were made by K-4 today and they loved it. I had a pre-assessment of them drawing a portrait, then we filled in a template, and next week they will draw a self-portrait :0) A big thank you to my dad who drilled holes in 3 reams of paper, which was over in 5 minutes. I suggest a drill press over a hole punch. My goal is to use what I have in the room this year.
