My Students

Proving each and every one of my students with the highest learning experience possible, regardless of their background is my goal every single day.

They are small, are curious, very active, bilingual, and technology disadvantaged.

They fives years old kindergartners in a bilingual classroom. The majority of my students are first and second generation Mexican-Americans. I am very grateful to see their excited faces every day as they enter school. Our school provides a safe space for our bilingual and bicultural students. Their linguistic and cultural identities are nurtured and included within in our curriculum

My Project

My students are in need of basic art supplies to explore and to enhance their abilities in creating amazing projects. These art supplies items will help my students to get visualize their projects, explore art with materials they haven't use before, and be able to finish their art projects.

My students need art supplies to explore their imagination and create amazing projects.My students need notebooks to write and draw their finding of books read in the classroom.

Glue sticks to cut and paste activities for reading literacy, sequencing, creating their own projects on the art center. Watercolor pads and pad drawing for making reading characters and settings activities come to live. Glue and spectra tissue paper to create art collages and colorful stain glass crafts. All students will use their art creativeness to express their imagination and comprehension, but mostly having fun creating amazing projects!!. Plus, while making their projects come to life, they are working on their fine motors skills.

My art budget has been drastically cut in the past year. Without the help of generous donors, we can not afford even the most basic supplies. Please help me to get my students the supplies we need for a successful art year!
