Chalking Up a Good Time in Second Grade

My Students

My students come from poor backgrounds. We are a Title I school throughout which means the majority of our students come from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds. We provide them with free breakfast, lunch, and for some, dinner.

I am lucky enough and proud to be their teacher for second grade.

With thirteen boys and seven girls we are active, hands-on, and sometimes a little loud. We love learning and being engaged and I am always looking for ways to keep their attention.

My Project

I would love to be able to give my students different ways to be creative through art. Watercolors and chalk would provide them with different mediums to ignite their creativity.

I believe that students who are exposed to art and create art become more observant, thoughtful, risk-takers.

These skills will help them to become well rounded adults who are able to approach tasks and problems in very unique ways.

For students who work hard daily on reading, writing, and math, art gives them something to look forward to. They don’t realize that they are actually learning at the same time.
