My Students

I have twenty-three, amazing students! I work at a Title I school. These energetic children are enthusiastic and motivated learners. My pupils have a unique variety of abilities, interests and learning styles. In kindergarten, it is developmentally appropriate to have lessons where the kids have opportunities to interact hands-on and creatively. In kindergarten, we must focus on rigorous academics, free play, creativity and developing fine and gross motor skills. I use Donors Choose to supplement the district's curriculum to enhance my students’ learning.

My Project

I teach art and health to all 3 kindergarten classrooms at my school. I often integrate the two subjects together. Many of the kindergarten health standards are social and emotional. I often read a picture book covering these standards and pair it with an art lesson. I go through sooo much art supplies teaching 60-75 five year olds.

I am requesting buttons, gems, tissue paper, and colorful tape.

These are items that we frequently use in many of our art projects.

We can use the tissue paper to collage, modge podge, do tissue paper painting and much more. The buttons, gems, and colorful tape add a special and creative touch to any art project.

I love giving children a variety of materials. This helps sparks imagination and expand creativity.

Thank you so much for supporting my classroom and public schools.
