Re: [art_education] First Days of School!
- Lisa, if it seriously your first day, you'll find that finding seats, attendance, and going over rules will take up much of your time.Where bathrms are, where wet stuff goes, etc. is also on the agenda. I have a container of M&Ms and at the end of each lesson with the few remaining minutes, i review terminology orother aspects of the lesson and give 1 candy per answer --- yes, kids will buy into 1 m&m! - amazing. Find out before hand which kidsshould not share a table with certain other kids. Some kids are new to the school, too. The day is quick and your voice goes!Don't forget your dismissal procedures and any points, etc. have fun. kathyOn Jul 5, 2010, at 11:53 AM, lisa.edwards45 wrote:

You might try an activity that ties in with History / Social Studies which you'd have to find a copy of the 5th grade History / Social Studies curriculum, which maybe available on-line. You'll need to get copies of Art work (paintings preferably) that are reflective of the time periods 5th graders study in History / Social Studies.
I've attached a plan I wrote and used for an observation I did two years ago. It is a cross-curriculum activity that is also a cooperative one that does not require a lot of set-up or does it create a mess. Ironically, it was for fifth grade. Feel free to use it if you'd like to. Let me know how it goes.

Subject: Re: [art_education] Lesson for interview adviceAll I know is that the lesson can be about anything (art) but he didn't
want to give me anymore details until I am asked to come for the 2nd
interview. The 1st interview is Tues and then the 2nd will be on
Thursday. I imagine it would be 45-60 minutes and need closure.
