In my opinion, art is the BEST resource because you can incorporate so many academic lessons into art! My favorite subject to include is reading because there are so many wonderful children's books to choose from in our school library! Take this one for example, The Artist Who Painted A Blue Horse, by Eric Carle. First grade students listened to the story and then were able to create their own "blue horse" illustration to go along with the book. We have a lot of creative first graders! Take a peak at their creations.....
