Mrs. Anguilla from Dearing GA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

ART You Glad To Be a First Grader!

My students need the construction paper, glue sticks, paints, and brushes to extend their creative imaginations! Art is an excellent way for students to express themselves as illustrators of their written work.

My Students

What I love most about my classroom are the children I share it with! My class is made up of 22 students. I have 12 boys and 10 girls. In my eyes, all my students are exceptionally bright and gifted in their own special ways.

My children come from a variety of different ethnic backgrounds and are from predominately low-income families.

Our school is a Title l school where we provide free breakfast to all our PreK - 5th-grade students.

My Project

My classroom budget has been drastically cut over the past few years. Without the help of generous donors, I can not afford to keep my classroom stocked with the basic art supplies needed in a classroom. Please help me get the supplies needed to make classwork exciting again! My students tell me all the time that they are not allowed to use finger paints, watercolors, glue or scissors at home; therefore, they do not know how to properly use these items. Teaching them the proper way to use these items helps develop their fine motor skills and feed their imaginations! When I integrate art into my reading and language lessons, the children come alive! For example, reading a story about a "dot" then creating their own dot painting (pointillism) brings the story to life. They are able to connect with the characters in the story. The children can then write about and present their painting to the class. This assists in developing their use of written and spoken language.

Let's awaken the children's imaginations and love of learning by incorporating different mediums to extend the children's reading and writing lessons.

When the children see their work displayed in the hallway outside our classroom they get so excited! I hear them talking about what they wrote and reading each other's work. They also discuss the art they created that's attached. They are proud of what they have accomplished!

So...... "ART" you with me!
