Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach in a 3rd grade class with many different multicultural students. We have as many as 17 different languages spoken in just our elementary school alone. There are special need students as well and non English speaking students.

These students have a tendency to move often. In creating memories they can take with them is such a necessary part of instruction.

I am asking for multicultural paint colors, paintbrushes, construction paper, multicultural shredded paper for hair, glue sticks, and a set of multicultural books. If they can't speak the language but could express themselves in an artistic way. They can feel proud and thankful they were given an opportunity.

Thank you in advance from these students who will be able to express their feelings,and emotions, and their story though this media.
