I will be teaching Catholic arts & crafts and as well as rotating with the preschool class. I am especially excited to be doing my arts and crafts class with the K-2 class. It is a perfect size class with not too many kids, so I won't feel so overwhelmed trying to help kids in their work. Although I am not very artsy on my own, I did get to do some research and gather some projects through books of my own and the Internet.
Following is my weekly schedule. I have put links to projects if they are available. Many of my projects will all be altered to go along with our Catholic faith and perhaps the Liturgical Calendar. But you can use the links as a starting point for your own ideas.
