My Students

My children are three, four and five years old. They love school for the most part. Some of them have special needs and some are from poverty stricken families. Most of them are very outgoing. They are all missing school right now because of us going virtual.

My Project

These crayons and colored pencils will help my children be able to do their art work at home. Most of the children in my class do not have crayons at home. I have been sending some home for them in their packets but I do not have enough for all of them. In my take home packets I include several art projects. I did a lady bug and cut the pieces for them to put together and they had to color the wings red and the dots on the wings black. They really enjoy art and sending us pictures of their work.
