My Project

My school does not have an art program, so the teacher is responsible for teaching art weekly. All of the supplies listed are things that we can use in our classroom.

The children love to use oil pastels, paint, and every year we make parent gifts.

The gifts are a homemade calendar that we laminate so it lasts all year. We also love to use colorful pins, and decorate our bulletin boards weekly with colorful art. This will help the children become creative and for me to implement art each week.

I have also included a clock to help the children learn how to tell time and a classroom doorbell to help with noise and transitions. This makes it fun for the kids.
