  • What are the Arts Toolkits? The Arts Toolkits are KETs response to then-Kentucky Commissioner of Education Gene Wilhoits challenge in 2000 to develop a dynamic and powerful arts and humanities toolkit that would be built from the Kentucky Core Content, Program of Studies, and Academic Expectations (2). During the 2001-2002 prototype stage, KET, KDE, the Kentucky Center, the Kentucky Arts Council, the Speed Art Museum, Stage One, and teachers from across the state who attended the summer Arts Academies all served as partners in the development of the Arts Toolkits (2).

  • Ideas to consider . . .
    • Have students create skits around groups of words (e.g. three words for a 4-minute skit)
    • Give students a generic, unpunctuated sentence (Why I didnt know that) and ask them to punctuate/perform it for different emotions/music [anger, surprise, embarrassment]
    • Give students an excerpt/section of unpunctuated dialogue and ask them to (1) break it into characters, (2) punctuate it, and (3) add setting and stage directions
  • More ideas to consider . . .
    • Cut out pictures of people from magazines and let students pantomime the picture while others guess who the character portrays. (use as characters)
    • Make a pile of shoes and have students draw one at random or have students use their shoe and tell where their shoe came from, where it has been, and why it ended up in the Discarded Shoe Pile. Works on storytelling and improvisation.
  • More ideas to consider . . .
    • Compile a box of random items, have each student draw an item out of a box. Then start a story and each student has to incorporate the item into the story in some way.
    • Using an ink pen, have the students pretend the ink pen is something other than and ink pen and the class has to guess what the ink pen represents (i.e. a tube of lipstick, or microphone).
    • Make a stack of card with each containing a different emotion (i.e. happy, sad, angry). Students have to say the letters ABC portraying the emotion.
  • More ideas to consider . . .
    • Have two stacks of index cards one with character (i.e. principal, clown, big bad wolf) Then have a stack of cards with different scenes. Students draw a scenes card and character card and create a skit.
    • Readers Theatre: Divide lines/segments in half with a boy reading the 1 st half, a girl the 2 nd half, or students each read a single word, or variations on different reading patterns.
  • Activity Time
    • Idea cards
  • Visual art project . . .
    • Class mural of a classic art piece, genre, or style (Draw a grid on the picture you want reproduced. Grid out a large sheet of paper or section on a wall. Students are responsible for reproducing the design in their own grids.)
    • Use art to reinforce parts of speech, create poetry
    • Use a group of pictures clipped randomly from magazines and have students create stories and/or storyboards
