During this interactive workshop, discover what developmentally appropriate, art-based learning can look like in any formal or informal learning setting. Participants learn to connect the cognitive, physical, and social skills of PreK students with related skill-building, object-based gallery activities, questioning strategies, and art projects. Attendance at Collection Connections: PreK Part 1 is not required as new artworks and activities will be included.
PreK teachers from classroom, day care, and homeschool settings, as well as preservice teachers are encouraged to attend, although others may benefit and are welcome to register.
Space is limited; preregistration is required. Cancellations must be received forty-eight hours in advance of the program or a $25 fee will be charged; program materials will be mailed to absent teachers.
Do your students like clues, games, puzzles, and riddles? Then this is the book for them! Prior to the workshop, read Chris Grabenstein’s The Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, a fast-paced, riddle-filled story with all kinds of humorous and creative clues to help unravel the ultimate puzzle. At the museum, Amon Carter educators provide resources and activities, including puzzles, rebuses, and riddles, that connect the book’s main themes and artworks to help support implementing the book in participants’ curriculum. Art-making and rebus-writing opportunities are included throughout the program.
Elementary school librarians and art, gifted and talented, language arts, and reading teachers from classroom and homeschool settings, as well as preservice teachers, are encouraged to attend, although others may benefit and are welcome to register.
