Start developing your child’s creativity early! This book provides thirty-six art projects that range from making a puppet to putting together a valentine’s door hanger. Your child will enjoy these fun-filled projects all year long while developing foundational skills including cutting, drawing, gluing, and coloring. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and the Plan-Ahead list of supplies will help you reduce preparation time. Skip tearing out your students’ pages needed for the day with these shrink-wrapped, loose-leaf pages in this unbound version.
With clear instructions for the teacher, even a not-too-artsy parent can work in an art lesson in 25-30 minutes a week. A year at a glance schedule and the scope & sequence of topics covered lay out what you can expect for the school year. Teacher tips and plan ahead supply lists make this program very user-friendly. Teacher help and student pages at each level are all in one convenient book. Art concepts or techniques are clearly defined at the beginning of each lesson. This includes vocabulary words. In grades 4-6, the focus of the lessons is basic drawing techniques, painting, color concepts and perspective. I appreciate the extended projects for more artsy students to do on their own after the lesson. In the younger levels K-3, projects are more of the cut & paste crafty projects kids love, with some basics on the color wheel. The holiday and seasonal pages are especially fun! Many of the pages are even started for the student to finish. You could not find an easier way to work some arts & crafts into your week than this friendly, one book format series that only requires a few basic art supplies. Perforated pages are not reproducible. Large 9” x 12” format. Books in the series range from 119-167 pgs, pb. ~Sara
