Students will learn to pinch clay, to squeeze clay, and to roll clay. Learners will by the end of class know how to make a coil, an imprint, an animal shape, a bowl, and a pinch pot. Why Clay? 1. It's therapeutic. It's fun. Simply the act of molding clay in one's hands whether you're a child or an adult can be very calming. Remember those stress balls that were once so popular? Manipulating the clay can help relieve stress or even be an outlet for young children who physically express their emotions. 2. It's an outstanding sensory development activity 3. It's play based learning. You might not realize it, but playing with clay is promoting minds to get busy by thinking about what they're going to create and how they're going to create it. This type of creative play promotes imaginative problem-solving skills.
I have experience working with clay all my life. I worked on the pottery wheel in art class in junior and high school. I have my own pottery wheel in my house. I am certified to teach art in the state of MA. I also have 3 years experience working in a special ed classroom in Haverhill MA in a middle school setting.
2 to 5 lbs of clay. a pencil ( to write in the clay) a bowl of water a dull butter knife( to cut the clay) a string/wire(to cut the clay) a sponge( to clean work surface) Clay: self hardening clay or air dry clay in any color. It usually comes in black or white. Any local art or craft supply store will carry self hardening clay. It is also sometimes called air dry clay. I am going to use a black color. I bought my clay from Sheffield Pottery in Sheffield MA. There is an on-line store if you need to order on-line. https://www.sheffield-pottery.com/default.asp?msclkid=bc3ee05b1f8a199028efbe9540e372db&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=**LP%20Branded%20-%20A&utm_term=Sheffield%20Pottery&utm_content=Sheffield%20Pottery michaels craft store: https://www.michaels.com/craft-smart-natural-clay/M10114031.html ($14 bag of air dry clay)

None. Optional: parents can help their students by sitting next to them off camera or just be nearby in case the student needs hands-on help.Camera angle: for the clay work try to angle your camera on the table where you are working so I can see what you are doing and I'll do the same.
