2nd Grade Artists Need Supplies To Create Amazing Projects
My students need 30 sets each of watercolors and oil pastels to help bring the animals and dinosaurs they are learning about to life and to create amazing art projects.
My students love art. However, for the past few years they have had to use broken pastel pieces and near empty watercolor sets. The new art supplies will allow my students to fuel their imaginations and create beautiful art projects.
I have a wonderful class of second graders.
Our school is located in a high immigrant, low income community in California. The parents of most of my students never finished high school. Many of my students will be the first ones in the family to finish high school and hopefully college too. Most of my students are English learners and I have several students with learning disabilities too. I also mainstream autistic students into my all inclusive classroom.
These art supplies will be used to create amazing art projects in my classroom to go along with our science and language arts curriculum. My students will study animal life cycles this year. They will also be learning about animal camouflage and dinosaurs. As part of the thematic units, my students will each get to choose their favorite animal and dinosaur to learn about and complete a written report. They will also learn how to draw their animal and dinosaur. The art supplies will be used to create amazing pictures that will proudly be displayed in the hallway for everyone to see. I'm sure my students will be very proud of their finished masterpieces and they will treasure them forever!
This project will allow my students to use the information they learn about animals and dinosaurs to create amazing art projects.
It will enable my students to go beyond just reading the material in their science and reading books. These supplies will enrich my curriculum and allow my students to use their creativity and become excited about what they are learning!
