  1. Hi Sylvie,
    Could you give me a little more information about R&S Art? Nathan is only in kindergarten this year and I don’t really “do” art with him. Should I add that to our daily or weekly curriculum?
    What does a student do in art beginning in k or 1st grades?
    Thank you,
    Linda Bobo Reddoch

    • Hi Linda,
      We have used R&S art since the beginning years of our home educating. In Kindergarten and 1st grade the art is very basic but develops good hand eye coordination, reenforces colors and shapes and the projects are so very easy to get together. There is lots of coloring, cutting, some gluing, and little projects that bring lots of satisfaction to the little ones.
