We know that research has shown time and time again, the importance of art in the educational process. Children who are exposed to music and art instruction do much better in reading, math and science. They develop greater curiosity about, understanding of, and appreciation for, the subject matter being taught. We know that providing arts in education stimulates better behavior, personal esteem and socialization skills. The activities in this book are not intended to replace core instruction, but rather to enhance and extend the concepts taught within your current practice. These patterns may be used not only in the classroom, but as independent practice as they are applicable to both school and home learning.
