How do you integrate art into your current curriculum?
I love the video about art integration. I have used music within my classroom for learning about the days of the week, the months of the year, and weather. I didn't realize I wasn't doing the integration. It makes sense to me to do art integration because any type of art is in my opinion, pushed down within the schools and in life. So to be able to enhance students learning by taking them outside their realm and challenging them using art is interesting and sounds fun to me! I have a few ideas with doing social studies and different types of musicians who lived during the time we are learning about, or even taking what the art teacher is teaching and tie that into a math lesson where we are working solving word problems and creating pictures to go with their word problems. I have yet to incorporate into my teaching rather, they have the option to read to self or draw/color during their free time. I play music in my classroom while the students work and especially during these times of pandemic, I allow for the students to sing/dance at desk if they are truly staying focused and calm.
I think art is important and allows for students to dig into something deeper with their learning.
