Thematic research binder

As I have made a light reference to this project in a comment a few weeks ago, about how much easier this would be to make in a digital format. But for this class she wants it in a folder as its  part of our final  exam. So I am glad that I have taken this literacy class at the same time as my Elementary Art ed. class as it has made incorporating literacy into my lessons that I wouldn’t of thought of previously. My host teacher has given me some wonderful Art magazines that has already made up lessons and a lot of them already incorporate vocabulary words into them. I will be adding these to my Thematic research binder for future ideas to incorporate into my Art class.

But one of my pages I need is ideas for books that can be incorporated into an art lesson. I know beautiful oops is one but I am sure there is others that is similar.  I want to have a page of books that are bright, colorful and geared toward Elementary age students.  Even after my Final I will hope to continue to look back here and add more to the list if there is more to add.

    Hi Susan! I’m not sure if you are looking for feedback and ideas, but just in case, I have a suggestion for a book to include in your teaching of an art lesson! It’s called “Red, A Crayon’s Story,” and it features (surprise!) a Red Crayon. The story teaches more than the uses of a red crayon in art, however – it is a beautiful story (in my opinion) that teaches about social interactions and the complex concept of identity. I would urge you to check it out, literally and figuratively!

    Best of luck – your project sounds awesome!

      Thanks! I will check out that book as sometimes other books will pop up as things to check out because you like or looked at.
