I break down my lesson plans into two groups 3 -5th and K - second. The
reason that I do this is the younger ones are in the magical age and I try to
gear my lessons to great creativity and a little technique.
The older ones want to know how to do different things in different mediums
and are interested in very popular themes and realistic work.
I have been grading them every night, according to being on task, technique,
and extra special effort, however there are different ways of doing this. An
art teacher in my district makes each student put their art work in large
manilla envelopes and she grades them periodically. It makes it easier in the
long run, instead of looking through mounds of drawing papers. I grade my
younger ones rather leniently because some of the boys have not attained fine
motor coordination yet. They get the gist of the lesson, but can not produce
the quality that the girls can attain at first and second grade level. It's
like I'm grading Jackson Pollack!!!
Hope this helps.
