Approaches to Learning/ Creative Arts

Updated: Oct 21, 2020

School Readiness Goal:

Children will develop the ability to express themselves creatively through the visual arts, music, dance and movement, and drama. Alignment Reference: Teaching Strategies GOLD: Obj. 14, 33, 34, 35 & 36 GELDS: CD-CR1, CD-CR2, CD-CR3 & CD-CR4 Activities: 1.  Here are Baby’s Fingers… “Here are baby’s fingers… Here are baby’s toes… Here is baby’s belly button… And round and round it goes!” You can replace the word “baby” with children’s name to make it more personal. The the rhyme is self explanatory, you gently massage (or tickle) each body part in the rhyme while making eye contact with the baby. If you have a tickly baby the end of the song is a fun surprise for your little one!

2. Make items for creative movement during music and movement.











3.  Make an outdoor music station.














4.  Create different themes in centers.


5. Ice painting is loved by kids any time of the year! In the winter it can tie in with a snow theme and in the summer it can be added to a cool outdoor activity on a hot day. Learn textures, colors, and design.















6.  Have a musical parade.
