What better way to improve a lesson than through Arts Integration? Students can express themselves through drawing, drama, creative writing, and crayon resist. Ezra Jack Keats uses a lot of pattern and texture in his books. Students can compare and contrast or do an author/illustrator study. Peter's Chair is a first grade story but can be used at multiple grade levels when combined with other Keats books. The list is ideas and not whole lessons. If you are unsure how to implement these ideas in your classroom, feel free to contact me.
