Developing Motor Skills in Art
This course for grades 1 and 2 has 42 lessons including practice in coloring, cutting, folding, pasting, tracing, drawing, painting, and project making.
The teacher's manual is needed to explain how to use the student packet. It gives step-by-step instructions for each lesson as well as reductions of the student's sheets.
The student packet includes 31 sheets prepared for certain lessons to help reduce teacher preparation time. Each student will need a separate student packet. The teacher should also have a packet to do as samples beforehand. Extra packets will allow the teacher to demonstrate doing the project in class and provide spares for the times someone needs to start over.
Each Artpac has 36 step-by-step art lessons, with ready-to-use pupil art sheets. Directions, examples, and needed materials are listed for the teacher. You don't need to be an accomplished artist to teach it. With each successive grade, more detailed skills are taught.
Each student will need a separate student packet. The teacher should also have a packet to do as samples beforehand. Extra packets will allow the teacher to demonstrate doing the project in class.
The Artpac number is the recommended grade level, but grades may effectively be combined using a packet near the actual grade level.
You will appreciate the simplicity and ease of art in this well-planned course.
