Most of my K-5 students are ELL. I try to design my art worksheets to be open-ended so ELL students can experience success in art and learning English. I also include art vocabulary to increase art literacy. Open Ended, is usually a student directed process, where they can draw their feelings, emotions, reactions to the art work in the blanks provided. They can choose to copy the designs, outlines the shapes/forms, or even just draw one aspect. Open ended is not assessed and there is no right or wrong. Just encourage active participation in some form.
