READ THE LESSON PLAN

The Fine Art Series

  1. We recommend introducing the fine art made by these artists with our Fine Art Display Cards. Use those larger format cards to explore the details of each piece of art and learn about the year it was made, the artist, and the art's style.
  2. Then, move on to our Fine Art Matching cards. These allow children to work with the artwork they love in a new way.
  3. When the children begin to write, inspire them to write about their favorite pieces of art using the movable alphabet, chalkboards, or pencil/paper (whatever is appropriate for that child).
  4. Once the children are reading non-phonetic words, introduce these 3-Part Fine Art Cards. Then, move on with the 3-Part Artist Cards where they match the names of the artists with their image.
  5. Finally, after the children succeed with the 3-Part Fine Art Cards, introduce the 4-Part Fine Art Cards where they match the artwork, its name, and its artists. This is an activity that truly grows with your children!
