The students in my inner city classroom come from poor immigrant families. Over 75% of them are English language learners with all of them receiving free/reduced-price lunch. The students live in crowded apartments with parents and grandparents. Even though the majority feel they cannot help their children due to their own limited English abilities, parents still have high expectations for their children to succeed.
Learning does not always come easily to my English language learners.
Some students also have special needs to make learning even more challenging. As their kindergarten teacher, I hope to make learning as fun as possible so that the children will be outstanding students in all subject areas.
My students need this basic classroom supply -- glitter glue -- which will be used for art projects.
Having this basic supply (glitter glue) in the classroom will allow my students to experience joyful learning while working on different art projects and activities throughout the school year.
Glitter glue, which can be used on paper as well as fabric and hard surfaces, can be used throughout the school year to engage students in creativity. Students will use glitter glue to accent their drawings as well as to create beautiful works of art on fabric. Kindergartners love practicing their letter formations by writing their names and words using glitter glue. They will also use glitter glue on various holiday (i.e. Valentine's Day, Easter) art projects. Students are highly engaged when they are able to work with glitter because it is so sparkly and fun! Glitter glue activities will encourage much creativity in my classroom.
Thank you for your support of my kindergarten students as they begin their educational journey.
