Crayola Education is excited to share the following resources with you to make teaching creative and colorful, everywhere you are connecting with students.
"Connecting the Dots Between Art and Literacy"
Join us on Oct. 27th at 4pm EST to hear insights from special guest author/illustrator of The Dot, Peter Reynolds. Get practical tips on bookmaking, storytelling, and art-infused projects that help make thinking visible.
"Creative Writing Story Boards"
In this lesson plan, students draft an original story with Crayola Twistable Colored Pencils, then design their own book by creating 3-D rubbings for illustrations. Students can present their work by reading their original books to their classmates over a video call!
"Portraits as Writing Springboards"
What genre could students use to use to tell their personal story? How might portrait images inspire different stories? Visual and written literacy work together to create a powerful narrative in this Thinking Sheet for students.
"Art as Text: Bridging Literacy and the Arts"
Young students can apply language skills to learn to 'read art,' including their own work. This video is part of Edutopia's 'Schools That Work' series and features key practices from Concourse Village Elementary School.
