When someone asks how lesson planning has changed over my year of teaching, the answer is easy - The Internet! I have shelves full of lesson ideas, art projects, and class activities but they are really just collecting dust now. When I need an idea, I just Google what I am looking for and many possibilities and on my computer in seconds. Pinterest is one site I really like because it is visual, just pictures of the ideas and you can get more details if you want by clicking on the picture.
Last week, I was looking for an idea to work on Perspective in Art class. With the excitement in the air about when we will have snow that stays, I looked for a lesson that combined the two ideas. I love the book Snowmen at Night and the illustrations fit perfectly for this lesson.
We hope you enjoy a peek at our classroom and some closeups of some of the Art.
