These materials will help my Pre-K and Kindergarten students explore familiar materials like paper to invent new ways of looking at the world around them. We will use these supplies during our Drawing and Collage unit, which emphasizes the importance of exploration and experimentation with materials. The bulk of this project requires assorted white and colorful paper options so children may practice their drawing skills and have a substrate to build up for their collages. We already have some oil pastels and crayons to get the school year started, and we would love some washable markers, as well as some drawing paper to use as we investigate its many possibilities. This Fall we will also spend three weeks exploring collage. Instead of using glue sticks or bottles, our children will use paintbrushes and foam brushes to apply their glue to their substrate so they can practice brush handling and improve fine motor skills. Once they apply glue, they can experiment with placing paper, felt, tissue paper, plastic art sheets, cotton, buttons fabric, yarn and found materials onto the glue to compose an image. We already have some scissors, and an extra set as well as adaptive scissors will help children who need some extra practice building the muscles they use to squeeze the scissors. Subject matter for their collages includes family life, animals, and our school community. Since I will be traveling from room to room we will also need storage bins, containers, book bins, sandwich bags to keep our supplies and artworks organized. I have also asked for a stapler for hanging bulletin boards and exhibitions, as well as sharpies for labeling student work.
