In art education circles, we all support arts integration in core subjects so I was thrilled to discover a classroom teacher getting her students excited about writing by integrating art.
I'd like to give a BIG shout out to my collegue, CRES first grade teacher, Mrs. Lisa Bond who fully embraced the concept of arts integration by creating this wonderful display of her students writing.
Central Riverside Elementary School's first grade classes visited two art museums in one week (heaven, right??) to MOCA (Museum of Modern Art) and the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens in Jacksonville, FL. Mrs. Bond took the opportunity to facilitate an amazing "Compare & Contrast" writing lesson, having her students create beautiful opinion pieces describing their experiences at both art museums.
