Art lends itself really well to inclusion. I usually do quite well at accommodating my lesson plans for everyone's needs. But I have a severely autistic child coming into my classroom this year and I want to meet their needs to the best of my ability. Any lesson plan ideas or advice?

Hello, I work at a K-6 school and all the other grades 1-6, except kindergarten I've got it down. For some reason with my kindies is that they are not engaging enough, or get really bored during the projects. Any thoughts on engaging and fun projects just for kindergarten? Thanks!

I know there aren't a whole lot of Canadians out there yet, but it's only a matter of time. If this group can get big enough maybe we can even branch off into provinces! The smART teacher has been a great resource so far and I can't wait to share it with my peers this fall!

I can't even begin to explain how much of a disorganized mess my file cabinet is. I primarily have lesson plans and hand outs in my drawers. I generally shove my latest plans in the front and always seem to procrastinate organizing! Any suggestions other than...just do it and get it over with?

In 2008, we did a giant post-it note wall. It ended up being an impressive installation piece that got us on the news. Each post-it told of an important issue, a quote, a fact about the candidate, or opinions from the student body about the candidates. Anyone else planning something along these lines?

In an elementary classroom, do you find that table bins (with markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc) work better... or community supplies on separate shelves with enough sets for every table (ie. 6 marker boxes, 6 crayon boxes, 6 colored pencil boxes, etc.)???

I would post make a post, then once a week they would respond to something in the posts. My question is, is the blog a good idea or should I look to twitter or is there another program?

How do you introduce the elements and principles of art? I base my projects around E & P's and explain new ones (one or two at a time)and using elements previously learned. What's a good way to cover them all in the beginning with a little hands-on learning? Could be a journal assignment, worksheets, project etc…

I am working w/classroom teachers to create a simple research paper for 5th graders. Does anyone know of any websites/books that give good information about various arists & their work? The "Getting to know the artists" series is a bit too young for my students and most websites I'm finding have more adult material.
