Sage Creek Elementary second-grade teachers, Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Lund, Mrs. Greenwood, Mrs. Ellis, and Ms. Sayers presented to the Nebo School Board of Education. Sage was invited to share their exemplary teaching practices in integrating the fine arts curriculum into academic subjects throughout the day. The second-grade teachers explained that initially the teachers reviewed their existing curriculum map and highlighted what the teachers were already doing in the fine arts areas.
Sage Creek teachers have also been using collaboration time to continue adding more aspects of music, movement, drama, and drawing to other areas of their academic curriculum. The teachers showed several video vignettes of students using different fine arts methods in various lessons. The teachers also discussed the process of incorporating these fine arts elements into their lessons to enhance student learning.
Thank you Sage Creek second-grade teachers for presenting innovative ways to incorporate fine arts into academic subject areas.
