Lesson Plans

Mary Ann,
Thanks for the sample art lessons. I have been sharing your books, the EC
teacher has quite a few of them. I am currently in Scribbles. I plan to buy
those she doesn't have. I own Good Earth Art, I got it from NAEA in Chicago.

I love your books, I choose what works best for art on a cart.

With 12 Sp Ed EC kids and 2 aides, I divide them into 3 groups. 1 group does
art with me, 1 group plays, and 1 group colors in a coloring book (What's
Wrong with the Picture?) and discusses it with the aide.

However, do you have any other ideas about what to do with the other 2
groups, who are not with me? I feel like I have to watch all 3 groups, while
trying to teach my group. The aides may be talking to each other, and I am
responsible for all the kids in the room.

I have tried teaching all 12 kids together, using the 2 aides, but I don't
give any of the kids enough attention. They are all so demanding all at the
same time. I don't get to teach concepts or vocab, it's more like survival.
The short attn spanners are "done" and ready to go on to the next activity.
Some don't talk, don't comprehend, don't listen even when looking at you. So
I have to guide their hands.
