Creative Experiences: An Arts Curriculum for Young Children Including Those with Special Needs.
For use in any classroom or group setting for young children, this arts curriculum guide provides a total of 112 learning activities equally distributed across the areas of creative movement, drama, music, and visual arts. The activities are correlated with the Learning Accomplishment Profile (LAP), a developmental assessment instrument. Because the activities are meant to be expecially useful in mainstream class settings, each activity includes suggestions for modification in five areas of impairment: hearing, mental, physical, speech, and visual. Concerning correlation with the LAP, four skills are included for each of seven developmental areas; for example, in the section on creative movement there are four activities apiece in gross motor, fine motor, pre-writing, cognitive, language, self-help, and and personal-social areas. Indexes provide a list of LAP skills included in the guide; skills are listed in the LAP's numerical order. Each activity is outlined in terms of title, related skills, needed materials, procedure, suggested modifications, and variations for enrichment activities. (RH)
