Week 12 Blog Post

Though I missed the deadline for the Seesaw activities (I forgot it was due Thursday.)  If I were to create three activities using SAMR, I would focus on the five senses.

SOL K.2 The student will investigate and understand that humans have senses that
allow them to seek, find, take in, and react or respond to information in
order to learn about their surroundings. Key concepts include
a) the five senses and corresponding sensing organs;
b) sensory descriptors used to describe common objects and phenomena

My first activity would be using pictures of the five sense and have the students match them with the corresponding picture. It would a worksheet so this would categorize as modification because students are using a different method to learn the senses.\

My next activity would be an interactive video describing the senses. This would be augmentation because the video serves as the lesson, The video would be doing all the teaching. My last activity would be a form of redefinition. I would have my students create some type of creative art to showcase the information they learned, such as a picture, song/dance, presentation, etc.

Week 12 Making Activity

Lesson plan for SOL 3.8

 We would have the students be broken into groups and they would be assigned a different phase of a subject. For our specific lesson, we chose plant life cycles. So after they are assigned a phase, they learn about it and they can decide a key concept from their phase to print and then teach the class about. The groups will go in chronological order and the teacher will have the end phase. We have a flower and it has all the parts.

Examples could include seeds, stems, leaves, petals, roots, the sun or sun rays, and chlorophyll.

You could use this lesson with any of the other subjects in this specific SOL

The student will investigate and understand basic patterns and cycles occurring in nature. Key concepts include a) patterns of natural events such as day and night, seasonal changes, simple phases of the moon, and tides; b) animal life cycles; and c) plant life cycles.



Week 12 Blog Post

  • In this week’s reading, the author showcased the power of collaborative art projects to “help students move beyond the wall of acquiescence to find their place in the community” through the mural project.  What organizations/entities do you think would want to collaborate in order to help facilitate the students’ perspectives? What experiences have you had in the past either as a learner or an instructor with other organizations in terms of integrating art into the K12 curriculum


I would love to work museums to help facilitate the students’ perspectives. In Richmond, we have so many connections to different types of art we can introduce to the classroom especially with being such a diverse city. I think it is important to incorporate community into your classroom and showing students that art can be found right in their backyard. I would also like to take them around Richmond and show them the different murals around the city since we have so many. I cannot think of any specific experiences where we had a speaker/learner come to my class and integrate art into the curriculum. I am 95% sure there was a time, but I am stumped when it comes to remembering right now.
