My Students

My students, from Yonkers, are part of a micro-society program. This program allows students to develop leadership skills as they hold jobs, actively engages students in the learning process, and makes learning real for students. They come to school eager to learn and yearning to make connections to the real world. As you enter the classroom, you will find energetic and enthusiastic scholars. Each day my students look forward to filling their minds with knowledge. I am very fortunate to teach this population of wonderful children from an urban community.

My Project

As we begin the second half of the school year, I have gotten to know many of my students and their hobbies as well as interests. Many love to read, others love to write and enjoy math. It intrigued me the most to see how many of my scholars also shared in the joy of art like me, their teacher. They were very artistic and it reflected in their writing pieces, whenever I allotted drawing space.

I was so impressed by my student's skills/talents and had soon become disappointed when our classroom supplies were in need of replenishing by December.

The use of art supplies is almost a daily necessity in my classroom, especially during writing or center time. There comes this sense of emotional satisfaction when children are involved in making art whether it be illustrating, painting or simply coloring.

Our students also enjoy integrating art into all subject areas. As we begin a new unit exploring plants and animals and their adaptations, it would be great for students to use these materials to illustrate animals living in various adaptations. Students can even be hands-on and use recycled items to create dioramas of animal habitats as well. My students have already shown an astonishing interest in many art activities during indoor recess and this project will help to enrich their world and making our academic learning more colorful.
