Art Across the Curriculum
My students need books about famous artists to write biographies. Basket making fits right in with our Oregon Native American studies.
Do you remember going to school just to see what kind of art you would get to create that day? My students are born artists. They live for art.
I work in a Title 1 School.
That means over 60% of my students qualify for free or reduced price lunches. We live in a lowly populated area on the Oregon Coast. I have an awesome group of 27 students this year. They are hard workers and really appreciate artistic opportunities. Even the shyest ones seem to shine when creating something. I love teaching this class.
Fourth grade is a writing year. My students need books about famous artists so they can write biographies and in turn learn more about art. The basket kits will give us a hands-on experience with our local Native American crafts in social studies. Pencils and paper are a staple we use every day.
I was an artist before I became a teacher.
There is no art curriculum at our school so it is up to me to provide that. I love art and want to share what I know with my students. These new supplies will help students learn about writing and Native Americans by using hands-on activities centered on art. Thank you for your consideration and for taking the time to read through our project.
