My class consists of three- and four year-old children who are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Our school district is in one of the poorest counties in our state. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love to read, and they love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experiences during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence!
With budgets in our district being drastically cut, providing materials like the markers, colored pencils, paint and construction paper requested in this project will provide a great benefit to our classroom. The students will be able to use these materials to foster their imaginations and create all types of interesting art pieces that will enhance the learning experience.
Creativity is intelligence having fun!
Being a creative soul myself, the materials that your donations will supply will help me inspire their imaginations. Who knows? You may possibly be helping them become the next Picasso or Van Gogh. The sky is the limit with possibility.
