    ISBN: 978-188483467-7

    Description & More Details



    Create an art-rich classroom with more than 100 activities described in this useful book. In addition to the activities, the book addresses how teachers can talk with children about their art, the stages in a child's artistic development, and how children can discuss ideas with peers. Focusing on the process of making art rather than on the product, More Than Painting is an easy-to-use guide to developing an art curriculum for your classroom.

    The popular More Than . . .Series by Sally Moomaw and Brenda Hieronymus is a child-centered integrated curriculum for five important areas of early learning: math, art, music, science, and reading and writing. Ideal for beginning teachers and inclusive classrooms, each book includes complete directions and illustrations for over 100 hands-on activities, with answers to questions teachers often ask. These books are guaranteed to encourage children to explore the wonders of their world! Softbound, 320 pgs.

    "The novice teacher as well as the seasoned expert will find something new in this book. In simple language, More Than Painting explains developmental theory and research as it applies to the creative arts."
    —Rochelle C. Paul, interim director, Early Childhood Development Program, Central Ohio Technical College

    "I would recommend More Than Painting to everyone! It has exciting art activities to do with children, and they are easy to understand and put together. I really like the part where the activity tells what the child will learn." —Mary H. Adkins, CDA and early childhood instructor, Apollo Career Center

    "All of the More Than . . . Series have gone to my classes for students to see. It is such a teacher-friendly format, one that works well for teachers at various levels of education and experience. Everything is laid out for the teacher: goals, materials, descriptions of activities; with enough theoretical framework provided at the outset to help students and teachers understand the rationale for the activities. These books should be in every child care center's resource room."
    —Louise E. Bower, professor of education, University of Cincinnati

    "I used More Than Painting, Much More Than Counting, and More Than Singing in Curriculum Development for Child Care Professionals. All of the titles in this series have a lot to offer practicing teachers who are always looking for clearly written practical applications."
    —Sharon Schneeberger, instructor, University of Missouri-Columbia
