My kindergarten class consists of 22 kindergarteners who are energetic, eager to learn, and highly motivated with technology and colorful things. Our students live in a low-income neighborhood with some parents working multiple jobs to keep food on the table and clothes on their backs. Our school serves 100% free breakfast and lunch to all students.
My students live in a neighborhood that was named the most diverse neighborhood in the United States.
Their families come from all over the world with different learning styles, values, and languages. In my class we have at least 7 different ethnicities with 30% of our students working on improving their English language.
These art supplies will help me to give my students more opportunities to express their creativity and have fun. I plan to do guided and non-guided painting lessons, craft stick catapults, animal creations with the letter of the week, and pipe cleaner plants to name a few.
Art makes even students who struggle academically proud of themselves building confidence and increasing engagement.
My students ask to do art projects almost every day and don't usually get the chance do to them at home. This project will not only help me to give them more art experiences but also give them a variety of different kinds of art projects to do. My students will be so excited to share something they created with their family and friends.
