In kindergarten, there is an overflow of creativity. Their minds never stop. Without a budget for art supplies in our classroom, my kids are missing out on using their talents to express themselves artistically. Also, painting and drawing are important for improving their fine motor skills. This year, I want to utilize art more to bring the joy, excitement, and creativity to their growing minds. Tempura paint is invaluable for a kindergarten class. There are so many uses for it. For example, it can be used to make pudding paint to add extra texture and bumpy surfaces to their paintings. What kindergarten doesn’t love to play in shaving cream? They can add paint to shaving cream to make a fluffy, squishy mound of whatever pops in their heads. Of course, they can just use the paint right out of the bottle too. Whatever they make, their families will cherish it. I am also asking for paintbrushes. I am sure their fingers and hands will still be used to paint, but hopefully not as much! Thermal laminating pouches are important to keep the students’ artwork from getting ruined. It won’t get ripped our stained when it’s protected. Finally, dry erase sleeves and markers will give the kids a fun way of writing and drawing. They can write on and wipe off. This will save on paper use and the kids will have fun. Without any state funding for extras in our classrooms, getting these items is impossible. Thankfully, there are donors that make a difference in our schools. My students are grateful for anything exciting or new that they can experience.
