Ms. Bishop from Heber City UT is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Adding Some Color in the Classroom

My students need a classroom environment where they feel welcome and safe. In each kindergarten classroom, we want to repaint one wall an appropriate color to create that environment.

My Students

I will have a new class of kindergartners who are participating in our dual immersion program. This means that they learn in English for half the day and in Spanish for the other half. We have all day kindergarten here at our Title 1 school. About half of these students come from homes where English is not spoken and kindergarten is their first exposure to English.

These kids, although life has already been hard for them, come to school optimistic, happy, and excited about learning.

I hope to better create an environment that fosters that joy.

My Project

My kindergarten students, especially my low SES and non-English speakers, need to feel comfortable, welcome, and safe in their classroom environment. Coming to school for the first time is a terrifying thing and I need to create a classroom that is as welcoming as possible.

The classrooms in our school need some color.

All of the walls are either white or a nasty felt. We hope to replace this felt with an age appropriate color to improve the feel of the classroom. The magnetic paint will allow us to easily post on the wall without ruining the new paint job.
