Mrs. Whittington from Meriden CT is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bringing Art Back To K

My students need a Cricut in order to make and design art projects. My K students learn the best by learning through play and exploration.

My Students

I teach in an urban district where the majority of our students qualify for free and reduced breakfast and lunch. I have a regular education classroom that includes ESL students, Special Education students, and students from a variety of economic backgrounds.

My students come to school every day ready to learn and eager to be engaged.

They put forth their best effort every day and are active participants in their own learning. I am continually looking for new ways to keep them invested in their education.

My Project

The Cricut will help my kindergarten students have the opportunity to be creative and give them the opportunity to use technology and art together. Students will be able to create art projects, design classroom decor, and even t-shirts. I will also be able to use the Cricut to create math and language art manipulatives for my students to use in centers to further their understanding. The paper and paints will provide them with the necessary supplies to carry out projects that they have helped design.

Students will have the chance to use their creativity and help design classroom signs as well as the manipulatives they will use in their learning.
