My Students

I teach fifth-grade students at a Title I school in Northern California. The students are from low socio-economic backgrounds and most receive free breakfast and lunch. They are hard-working students who come to school every day excited about the daily lessons. It is not their fault that they can not contribute to the cost of the supplies necessary that would give them every opportunity to succeed. It is important that they are given every opportunity to succeed in their education and studies.

My Project

My students faces light up when it's time to draw. We love it when we are able to bring our creativity to our classroom projects. Unfortunately, the only supplies we have are lead #2 pencils. Now a pencil is fine but its color is limited.

With a bountiful box of colored pencils, my students can soar with possibilities.

The glass bottles from Egypt can glow with green and blue rather than lifelessly sit with dull gray lead. Our pirate ships can crash through depths of blue and turquoise while their cinnamon colored sails slash the cerulean sky. Colors abound and await my students imagination.

Our tiny trays of watercolors lay waiting for use. With watercolor paper we can draw an ancient explorer map with a fine pointed Sharpie and wash the paper with watery color. We've tried to paint on copy paper but alas it puckers and tears, leaving our ideas puddled and pale.

Thank you for considering to help my students creativity soar.
