Objectives/Outcomes: Students will listen to a story about feelings (The Feelings Book by Todd Parr) and then will create a picture of how they feel in that moment while listening to the story.
Performance Art highlighted in this lesson: Students will listen to a story about feelings, then we will discuss this famous artwork by Keith Haring. We will discuss how the students think the character’s in the image are feeling and why they think they are feeling that way.
Art Standard Addressed-Subject Integration: VA:Cr1.2.KA Engage collaboratively in creative art making in response to an artistic problem.
Always good to explore feelings! And using the VTS should set up a framework where students can be accepting about other kids' reactions and feelings in any given situation. Makes me think of that book Today Is A Good Day to be Silly! and other moods....
Thanks for the link to a good website too. It looks like a great resource.
