I have two spirited classes of sixth-graders who let their presence be known. Their talents and abilities do not always show in traditional written assignments. I am seeking 10 sets of paint brushes, sets of watercolor paints, paper, and pastels that will allow my students creative ways to demonstrate their learning in math, science, and social studies. "What do we get to design for this unit?" This is what my sixth-graders ask with excitement each time we begin studying a new topic. This is a drastic change from when I assigned essays as the way to show they learned something from reading a book together. My students still learn from texts and include written elements in their projects, but they have shown me they need to apply this learning by creating something visual. When they get to design and create artistic demonstrations of their learning I see a focused and engaged class. We make pictures to show what is happening in a math problem, design board games with questions from a text they have read, build boats to understand buoyancy, and draw the animals in the ecosystem they are studying. I would like to bring in paint and pastels as alternatives to the crayons we use for everything so my students can experience different art media as they create and design.
