123, ABC Lets Do Art

My students need wiggly eyes, glitter, stamps, ink, tissue paper, pipe cleaners, feathers and other art materials for art projects. They also need a label maker so we can label where everything is.

My Students

Art projects are a big part of kindergarten. You can be a major part in of making this happen.

I teach Dual Language Kindergarten in Texas.

Many of my students are learning English as a second language while still maintaining their native Spanish language but, this year I have English speakers that are learning Spanish. My English speakers help those who are learning English and my Spanish speakers help those who are learning Spanish. Being that they are so young and learning a second language, they would benefit greatly if they could do more hands-on projects.

My Project

Hands-on is one of the best ways to teach kindergarteners. They can learn about the world and express how they see it. With the correct materials such as wiggly eyes, colored tissue paper, and tacky glue, my students will have the chance to create many more projects. They also need a label maker so we can label where everything is. Additionally, I have asked for materials such as letter stamps and play dough cut outs, with which my students will be able to create words. Ultimately, these materials give them the opportunity to learn, remember and recall what they have learned.

Each year in school is important but kindergarten, in my opinion, is one of the most important.

With the label maker, art supplies, the stamps and centers, I believe that our students will benefit from this greatly. It is our students' foundation and we want the best we can get. Help me give these kids a strong foundation. Thank you from me and my students.
