Distance Learning Plan for Art
I am offering video conferencing every school day from 11:30 am-12:15 pm. Conferencing is offered through Google Meet to any students in grades k-8 who need additional assistance completing art assignments or utilizing the Google classroom platform. The link to join the meeting is posted on the stream of each Google classroom page. If you do not have access to Google classroom and would like to video conference with me please email me and I will provide you with a link. *Please note that the current time or procedure may change if necessary. Please check Google classroom or my website for updated information.
Dear WLB students and families,
I hope you're all doing well. Below I've posted assignments for our distance learning plan for art. Distance learning is a completely new experience for all of us, teachers included. While it is important for me to continue to provide quality instruction to all of my students, I certainly do not want art assignments to be a source of stress for any of my students or their families. Please do your best to complete the assignments, but know that I understand that it may be more challenging for some students to complete assignments, (particularly drawing assignments) without face to face instruction. This will be taken into strong consideration when I am completing grades, so please don't stress! Additionally, please contact me through email or join my daily live meeting (11:30-12 M-F) if I can assist you in any way. I hope you have fun learning about new artists and trying new art techniques. Art can be a really fun activity when you're home and a great stress reliever! I'm looking forward to being back at school with you all soon!
Please note:Teachers will do their best to respond to parent and student inquiries in a timely manner. Please allow up to 24 hours for a response.
Please read and visit the links below to find your child's digital learning assignments for art class. Students should follow their regular A-E school day schedule and complete art assignments on the letter day they usually have art. As always, please feel free to email me at email@example.com with an questions.
How do I turn in art class work?
Google classroom assignments are asked to be turned in digitally through the Google classroom. Please submit photos of assignments through Google classroom only beginnig 4/24. Directions on how to do this are posted on our classroom page.
Pre-K ONLY Parents/students can photograph student work and email it to me. If photos of work are emailed please write the student's first and last name and class or section (i.e. pre-K Ricker)
Student directed art or fine motor activityRecommneded choices: Play with playdough, paint, draw, pinch and rip/cut and glue paper, string beads. Let work be child directed and ask your child questions about their choices while they work. :-) It's really fun to hear their responses!
