Art Integrated In SDFAS Pre-Elementary Curriculum

By Isabelle Gilet

Starting from PK0 and up to 8th grade, SDFAS curriculum integrates Arts in the daily activities of the classroom. In K, our students have been working on emotions. Our 3 classes have been organizing all their activities around this theme. They target social and emotional development, strategies to better recognize and manage emotions, and reading and writing, vocabulary.

Integrating arts into core subjects helps young children learn better across the curriculum. Arts-integrated teaching taps into children’s natural desire for active learning through the senses. By singing,  imagining, dancing, drawing and connecting their bodies and minds, children learn more deeply and meaningfully, especially in subjects like reading, math, and science.
