Art Supplies

My students need creative materials to engage in artistic projects and their daily work.

My Students

Living in poverty creates many obstacles to learning, including, but not limited to a lack of educational resources and an environment plagued with violence. My students have to endure these struggles on a daily basis.

In spite of the difficulties my students face every day, they are eager and motivated to learn!

Their faces light up when they are able to recognize and decode words and successfully compute math problems. They are overjoyed at their emerging reading and math skills.

My Project

My kindergarten students are naturally creative and love engaging with creative materials. At this young age, it is developmentally appropriate for students to engage in such materials but unfortunately they are not provided to us. If we receive these supplies, students will use them across content areas to express and demonstrate their learning through artistic avenues. Additionally, students yearn to engage in these materials and their eyes light up with excitement and joy every time they use these materials.

Without these materials, students lose out on wonderful opportunities to both engage in their daily work creatively and to create artistic projects.

With these materials students can have the opportunity to engage creatively which also leads to increased critical thinking skills! It would be such a joy to give my students such an opportunity!
