My Students

I am a 6th grade teacher in a school with limited resources. My school is in an urban environment where all my students qualify for - and receive - free breakfast, lunch and snack daily. Most of my students are considered low income. Some of my students come from all around the world and are learning English.

Despite these financial obstacles and hardships, I want my students to feel successful at all times.

There are so many things that we can use in the classroom that will aid ALL students, yet as teachers in a low income district, we just don't have the access to them.

My Project

My students need a strong supply of coloring materials so they can exercise their creativity. Coloring is so very important in my classroom and so very beneficial for student learning - aspiring talent develops! Pictures and drawings may seem simple – yet they can be so complicated as so much is involved in coloring. From it, my students receive an opportunity to apply their fine motor skills. They also get to exercise great levels of concentration and coordination. Many of my students enjoy coloring - they take pride in selecting the “right” color for the task at hand. Using a variety of coloring tools and materials allows my students to apply good judgement in selecting that special color as well as applying the appropriate hues and shades within. My students enjoy enhancing their drawings with diverse colors that the traditional crayon set may not contain.

Unfortunately, nothing can be more frustrating for a student than reaching for that special color crayon and to discover that it’s not there – it was either not included in the set, is broken, or worse - missing.

Sharing crayons with other students can help – but not entirely. Many students are often coloring the same thing with the same color and therefore, it is critical, to have extra coloring tools in complete sets to not deprive any of my students’ artistic ability. Having an abundance of colored pencils, markers and crayons in a variety of color will allow my students to reach high levels of creativity. Furthermore, they will be able to experiment with coloring in variation – learning the difference when applying color markers, color pencils and crayons: color always in all ways. Your donations will help our classroom!
