Ms. Hadley from Kalamazoo MI is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Color Play

My students need to be able to play with colors, with the restriction of someone telling them not to mix the colors. Having their own set of watercolors allows for this freedom.

My Students

I work with pre-K children that are imaginative and curious about the world around them. They desire to have fun and learn about what is around them. They may be small they love to play and learn at the same time. They have tons of energy and are excited by new experiences.

I seek to give them an imaginative and creative education.

I think learning can and should be fun. I am seeking the materials to create this atmosphere. I seek to fund projects that will help have a fun educational experience. Allowing kids to have hands-on with materials that allow their own creativity and imagination to grow.

My Project

These materials allow my kids to mix colors and see what new colors are made. It will allow to learn and discover on their own what colors are made by others.

The fizzy mix color set will be great for a small group project.

learning and having fun with colors. This also allows the kid's imagination and creativity to grow.

The watercolor sets will give them the chance to explore colors during our free choice time without the pressure of big messes. They can use this material without too much guidance, allow them to take pride in their own work.
