Strawberry Square II: Take Time. Teacher's Guide. 33 Lessons in the Arts to Help Children Take Time with Life.
This teacher's guide accompanies a series of telelessons designed to stimulate arts activities in grades 2 and 3. It follows a story line established in "Strawberry Square" which centers around the revitilization of Strawberry Square by Skipper, the owner of the Tune Shoppe in the square. Each of the 15 lessons has four sections, which contain a brief description of the story presented on television and suggestions for facilitating learning, an explanation of the importance of the lesson, an outline of major themes, and suggestions for follow-up activities. Students are involved in collecting various shapes for sculpture, making spider webs with strings, creating word pictures, planning a festival, using sign language to communicate, playing rhythm games, scribbling as an example of nonrepresentational art, writing poems, and learning Spanish-language songs. Also included are biographical sketches of the artists involved in the creation of the series and a 20-page annotated bibliography of sources appropriate for use with each lesson. (IS)
