Your culminating projects (Integrated Arts Activity Plans Part 1 and Part 2) will require you to choose two different specific children’s literature books as the center for your teaching focus. Once you have selected your books, you will develop 4 detailed activity plans for each. One plan must focus on a 2-dimensional art project, another must focus on a 3-dimensional art project, and there must also be one movement activity and another separate music activity. All four plans must each specifically teach a an objective (skill, concept, or technique) in visual art, movement (Links to an external site.), and music (Links to an external site.). For the link to the objectives found on the Texas Pre-K guidelines click here . (Links to an external site.)
All four plans must be inspired by and related to the children’s book you have chosen. The activity plan format or template has been provided below. A source for other ideas linking art extension ideas to children’s literature has also been provided below. Other links to additional literature and an example of an abbreviated integrated arts plan have also been provided. When you have completed your 4 plans for Part 1, upload and submit them here.
NOTES- a) You may not use anything related to the example that I have provided (activities related to an Ocean or Under the Sea thematic unit); b) Remember to challenge yourself to use books other than those that you are most familiar with or typically use on a routine basis (including The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear). Don’t forget to apply what you now know about activity planning and the elements of Standard 4.
