By Cathy Weisman Topal

You’ll love teaching Kindergarten with this child-centered, carefully structured program. Experience, along with your students, the delight of discovering materials, developing skills, and inventing new ways to create. Field-tested, effective classroom management techniques are included in each lesson. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, students naturally connect to concepts across the curriculum, from discovering the parts of insects and other animals to thinking about and designing buildings and communities.

Each lesson is developed to strengthen arts-based, inquiry-based teaching skills and be easily used by educators, regardless of their previous art experience.
