I teach art once a week for 45 minutes to K-5 graders. I also teach Art
1 four an hour four times a week as an elective to our middle school
(6-8 graders). We only have two classrooms per grade level so I only
have twenty K-2 graders, and twenty-five 3-5 graders at a time.
I would love to have the little ones for an hour as well, but we have so
many pull-outs (drama, dance, technology, music, p.e.) that we can't fit
it in our already extended school day.

different than other districts. So I thought I would research within
this group for starters.
Please email the group and tell the class time and how often you see
your kids. If you would put your district and state it would also be
I see our 1-4 grade students for 30 min. twice in a 6 day schedule.
