Stacie Some very simple journaling and illustration works very well for little guys. Approach not as a word/spelling lesson but as integrating an event with visual images and a description if they can. Developmentall whole sentences or any writing forthat matter is hard but by the middle to end of the year there will be growth. This is a very self affirming activity for kids and addresses many levels of development. Deb/barely still on summer break in Kent

Subject: [teacherartexchange] Decisions, decisions...

Hi, once again! Class begins tomorrow. I'm not prepared!!! Anyway, I'm <br>working on my syllabus. I think I need to create at least two different ones <br>because I have all grades K-8. For 5-8, I am planning on having the students <br>keep sketchbooks and portfolios, but I'm not sure about the K-4. What do you <br>guys think? Should I at least have the 1-4 keep portfolios? Do you think they <br>could benefit from sketchbooks? I figure the kindergartners will be too little <br>for either. I am also asking the older kids to write little reflective <br>essays on their art projects. I am required to include writing in my class. At <br>what ages do you think I should start requiring this? First grade? Second <br>grade and up? This is so overwhelming! Thanks.<br><br>---<br>To unsubscribe go to <br>>
