I open my room to student teachers, practicum students, and observations every year. I believe in helping to develop the next generation of art educators, and truly enjoy my time with them. This looks like the first year in about a decade I'm not going to have a student teacher.
However, right now I'm hosting 3 practicum students from MTSU. They have been a wonderful group! This post is about Ms. H's lesson. She chose to work with Kindergarten. I love when people are up for the challenge of our littlest people!! She really did well for her first time developing a lesson plan & teaching it! In the picture she is teaching the students about lines in a kinesthetic manner. So much fun!!
They applied the lines they learned about in a turtle drawing. They used construction paper crayons to finish their work. This was the first time Ms. H used them...and she LOVED them(I do too). One of the greatest things about Ms. H....she wants to grow!!! I love when a up & coming teacher comes humbly to the table...and just wants to learn! She is going to learn...she is going to grow...and she is going to make a great art teacher!!
