Arts and Crafts on hold Unless...

My students need art supplies to use as part of multi-subject differentiated instruction extension activities.

I am a 5th Grade teacher. I teach in an inner-city elementary school where 95% of our student population qualifies for free lunch.

I have a wonderful class. They are curious, boisterous, and deserving of every opportunity to enhance their learning. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts within our school, certain extras are considered luxuries. We have workbooks for test prep and, at times, it feels like all we do is test prep. I have spent my Teacher's Choice money three times over to supplement consumable art supplies. Most of my students don't own their own crayons, paints, markers, scissors, etc., so if the school can't supply it and I don't replenish the supply, the students miss out on opportunities to participate in extension activities that research has shown can help certain students learn and retain information.

The art supplies requested would allow me to incorporate into my lessons differentiated instruction for those students that learn best when content is taught using a tactile and/or visual approach. For other students, it will reinforce what has been taught. Best of all, participating in the visual arts is just plain fun!

Your generous donation will not go to waste. You will make it possible for my students to participate in enriching projects that should not be reserved for holidays only. This isn't a fancy proposal. And while I can't promise a fancy mural, I can promise that these art supplies will not go to waste. Thank you for your consideration.
