Mrs. Povsner from Chicago IL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Art Class with Scholastic Art!

Help me give my students Scholastic Art magazine. This wonderful periodical helps students with literacy and gives them access to current art happenings all over the world. Students get hands-on art tips while having fun in class.

My Students

I love my students, and I love our school community. My students deserve access to great academic and art materials.

My students live in a low-income/high poverty, urban school district.

They are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom including emotional trauma, a high mobility rate, and many special needs. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and 99% receive a free lunch and breakfast. My students are 70% Hispanic and 30% African-American. The majority of my students are far below the national and state standards in reading and math.

My Project

My students love art class to begin with. They often crave that little extra, and this project is a great way to give them something extra.

My students will have access to Scholastic Art magazine which includes many different creative activities.

Having subscriptions to Scholastic Art magazine will help increase their Language Arts skills while in the fun and exciting art class!

Reading does not exist in a bubble and neither does art. Scholastic Art will also aid in the math and science arena, too.

Students will be using the Scholastic Art magazine as independent art work. They will have time at the end of class to read the magazine and share ideas with classmates .

I am really excited to share this resource and do activities with my students this upcoming year.
