Expanding Equity in the Early Grades through Art and Nature Study
Brouillette, Liane
Journal for Learning through the Arts, v18 n1 2022
This article examines the goal of kindergarten, along with how the youngest members of a kindergarten cohort may be disadvantaged by an over-emphasis on reading skills. Evidence is examined, showing that kindergartners benefit from learning practical, social, artistic and oral language skills. Effective ways that early elementary school teachers can awaken children's desire to learn through hands-on aesthetic and nature study projects are described.
