Re: FLS / Special Education Art Lessons?
- Hi Cindy
I am sure you will enjoy this group of students! I have two self
contained classes of special education students w/ degrees of
abilities. I find you need to modify the materials for a few kids,
like if it is a drawing experience and you have a child that is
totally hand over hand, you might have different collage items with
texture for her to choose from and then the aid hand over hands with
her to glue them. Or a child that throws things, if he is responsive
would paint of course, but if he is having a bad day maybe he will use
chalks or oil pastels. The aides need to communicate with you and you
need to communicate with them so the student work isn't their work.
As for lessons, I often modify my kindergarten experiences and or read
a book or look at art. oops have a meeting! ALi
