Interesting, how differently we all teach...I am new at teaching K-3 art in
a classroom setting this year and I find that reading an on topic book is a
good way to get them settled down and working quietly. I don't read books
that take the whole period, so I still have plenty of time for one on one
instruction and assessment. Teaching is the whole package as far as I am
concerned, reading to them included, and I do not sit down while reading,
unless I gather them together on the carpet so they can all see the
pictures closer up. I am certain my principal would not consider reading
to my kids while they are working a BAD THING. I also entirely DISAGREE
that reading to the kids while they work "feeds the idea that teaching art
is easy!"!!!
