READ THE LESSON PLAN

The Fine Art Series

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