Imagine this scenario: A preschool director is talking with parents as they pick up their children from school. One parent asks why her child rarely brings any artwork home. Another parent remarks that her child takes home something she created almost every day and asks whether she is spending too much time on art. The director decides to invite parents to a workshop on visual art and young children to help respond to these concerns. Identify one concept that would be essential to cover in the workshop and explain your reasoning. Then write a brief script to introduce and explain this concept to parents. Cite Learning Resources to support your answer.
Based on what you have been learning this week, how would you respond to a preschool teacher who confides that she “is not an expert on music” and wonders, aside from teaching simple songs, what kinds of musical experiences she should provide to young children?
Chapter 16 in your Teaching Across the Content Areas text is titled: “Creative Movement: More Than the Hokey Pokey.” Consider how all that you have learned this week about movement and young children has validated the chapter title. Then explain three ways preschool-age children can benefit from movement activities.
