My students need markers, new pencil sharpeners and boxes to replace broken ones. Scissors and a paper cutter are necessary tools for projects. The speaker allows students to hear a variety of music genres.
My 31 fourth grade students receive integrated art and music instruction in my classroom. They are the only class at our school to receive this unique exposure to art and music, and it becomes something they brag about as the school year progresses.
My students enthusiastically participate in these curriculums.
Art and music often provide my students who struggle in academic areas an opportunity to excel. My students who experience anxiety and depression often find an outlet for expression in art and music. All of my students get the chance to express their opinions about art and music, supported by evidence, which is a key 4th grade standard.
My school has been an Arts Integration school for the past decade or so. However, due to recent cuts in grant-funding, we no longer receive necessary materials for art projects.
My students use markers, scissors, and color pencils regularly to create their artwork.
As a teacher, I need to replenish not only these supplies for our art curriculum, but others such as such as pencil boxes and sharpeners, and a paper cutter. I also do my own music curriculum, exposing students to many genres of music and how that music tied into history and culture. My bluetooth speaker died last year, and I need to replace it so I can play the various songs and musicians for my students. Funding for this project will provide my students with art and music materials they will not get otherwise.
