Color Their World

My students need crayons, colored pencils, and markers to be able to color their world.

My Students

My students are 43 eager, energetic, and loving First graders, soon to be Second graders who are enrolled in one of Delaware's dual language schools. Students alternate between taking classes one day in English and another day in Spanish throughout the week. Moving forward with the Utah Model next year where students will receive one half day of English and the other half in Spanish. 99% of the students at my school come from low income homes where 100% students receive free school lunch. Regardless of our population's struggles, our school maintains a desire and mission to create bi-literate and bilingual learners of our future.

A great number of our students are ELL who are ecstatic to learn and become bi-literate and bilingual scholars.

Whenever presented a challenge, my students are tackling it full force giving it their all. Students encourage each other to never give up and do their best even when they feel discouraged. Our school seeks to show the potential of our student population with what they bring to our classrooms. Our jobs as teachers to be live and breath the UNIDOS (united) mission.

My Project

My students come from low income households where buying school supplies may be a difficult task for some. However, my students enjoy coloring and adding detail to their pictures with a variety of art supplies. By providing my groups of students these crayons, markers, and colored pencils they can avoid having to bring these items in for the next school year. Since my co-teacher and I are looping with our students, we rather save them all the money on these supplies.

I decided to add in the multicultural pack of crayons because I want my students to be able to express and represent themselves with correct skin colors.

I have often seen my students struggle to find the correct shade of brown or tan to get their skin colors to show in self-portraits in their work. I wanted to make sure the diversity of my students are appreciated and able to be presented in the correct manner.
