    Communication Language Arts Life Skills Listening & Speaking

    This kindergarten and first grade residency is meant to encourage learning in literacy as well as in an art form. Through works of children’s literature, vocabulary lessons and word walls, as well as hands-on experience with an art form, students use fine and gross motor skills as they discover that learning is fun. Five visits with the artist are 90 minutes long, giving time for large and small group activities. In a suggested culminating event, students present what they have learned to another class, or a gathering of their parents. A planning meeting with the artist is recommended.
