When language, art and technology are integrated then learning will surely be a great experience!
During the “How We Express Ourselves” planner, Grade 4 CM1 and Grade 5 CM2 Special Arabic students studied different types of stories and deduced the moral in many stories that they read.
Early at the beginning of the planner, students sat in pairs, and thought about the moral and the type of stories that they would like to write. After that, they shared their great ideas and filled a story map.
Students reviewed the different story parts; each pair was assigned a task according to level. Students in level 1 wrote the introduction, students in level 2 wrote the introduction and the conclusion and students in level 3 and level 4 wrote the body. The missing parts for all levels were filled by the Special Arabic teacher. The outcome was different types of interesting stories and different morals (the heart of Differentiated Instruction).
Students enjoyed typing parts of their stories on the computer (technology integration) then drew the cover and the different events (art integration).
During Child’s Day, students read stories to their peers. The children ended celebrating their special day all together topped off with cake and cookies.
