Thinking with a Line, Teacher's Guide

Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, this teacher's guide offers teachers a new art and literacy tool through exploring the basic element of line.

Children delight in discovering that they can create signs, patterns, and complex structures by printing with small cardboard rectangles dipped in ink. This innovative approach provides an effective and developmentally appropriate approach for increasing visual learning, motor skills, language development, and critical thinking.
