Learning Lines with Line Stations

So I’ve been imagining about a couple of factors (which clarifies the burning smell). Past fall, I experimented with some “Halloween facilities” or stations that my college students rotated by means of. I did this on the day our college was having tumble events and costumes simply because I realized the little ones had been heading to be energized and I wished to journey that wave of excitement. I preferred it, the kids cherished it and I considered I need to do it much more often. And then I didn’t. 

* The children acquired to expertise a vast variety of mediums in a quick sum of time. A person thing I have observed is that I do not ‘have the time’ to permit my college students to experiment with a ton of art materials. This authorized me to do that.

* All people was pretty fired up and engaged. I necessarily mean, it really is art, they normally are but…it was electric powered this time all around. And they did not ‘need me’ or check with for my approval. 

* We made A Whole lot. I generally truly feel responsible at the conclude of the faculty yr that we only have a handful of items. We had a ton every that we established!

For that explanation, I made the decision to consider the exact notion and implement it to the ingredient of art of LINE. I seen that numerous of my college students, considering the fact that the pandemic, are lacking in ability: drawing, cutting, you know, the essentials. So I determined to do this facilities or stations matter with ALL of my learners, kindergarten through fourth. Finally, we will use these papers as backgrounds for a range of initiatives (which will vary by quality) but for now…I’m psyched with what we’ve made. I see so quite a few options with this strategy: the elements of art, artwork historical past, new mediums, and many others. And it has me excited. Which is something I’ve not felt in a whilst as the pandemic, as perfectly as the pursuing final two years, introduced me intense burnout. 

If you are fascinated, below is the online video I produced for my college students. I will be sharing the resources and how I made them in the next few days. So stay tuned!
