The Arts help students express, organize, convey, and comprehend ideas that are often difficult to fully express through other mediums. In this brand-new series of resource round-ups focused on the Arts, we will share resources that help teachers and students do just that.

Whether you’re helping your students develop an understanding of math through visual representations, enriching your K-5 Arts curriculum, or creating additional opportunities for your students to express their gifts, our Arts resource round-ups will help you get there.

This week, we’re featuring Semester Long Painting Projects, Classroom Posters and Flashcards, Editable Meeting Notes Templates, Nutcracker Readers Theaters, Orff Exploration Bundles, and much more.

You’ll want to ready your pencils, paint brushes, mics, and instruments for these resources, half of which are FREE!
