My classroom is full of English Language Learners (ELLs) from diverse backgrounds living in the city. I have a lot of students with various learning and behavioral needs.
We are a large class with very little funding.
39 five year olds with new students being added daily. Most of them have never been in school before. Many of them do not have access to art supplies while at home. I want to be able to provide them with these materials while they are at school.
My students will benefit from these supplies in order to express themselves more artistically in the classroom. We will use the dry erase markers daily to write on whiteboards instead of using paper.
We will use the construction paper to express ourselves beyond just using crayons.
We currently do not have any pieces of construction paper and very small amounts of computer paper to use. I specifically want to use it during our shape unit to make shape collages. Additionally, we will use the vest to calm our anxious bodies. Some students act out and could benefit from a weighted vest to smooth their over stimulated senses.
