Help me give my students a carpeted place to engage with my lessons and demonstrations on art basics, where they also observe other professional artists on our Smart Board before trying it out themselves.
This project supports a Black teacher or a school where most students are Black. See more projects.
This is a Title I school, and I have loved being able to provide students with the supplies that support their creativity and exploration.
One of the most rewarding things about teaching Art is when the children have excitement about something they are learning in class that Art has allowed them to see in a different or deeper way.
They love Art!
These students are all early childhood, which means they are all levels from Pre-K through 1st grade. This allows our school the opportunity to focus on the foundational skills that can help these students bridge the gap to further learning down the road, and this is something I strive to contribute to in their Art lessons as well.
Just like other classroom teachers, the Art teacher also relies on a lesson time to engage with students more directly, and to demonstrate the possibilities with their given assignment. A nice carpet that also serves as a "spot maker" to make sure each student has enough room to see the teacher and engage with others would be so helpful for me during my Art lessons with the students. This would also contribute to the fun we have coming back together after an activity for either games or review, which can at times also allow me more time to clean and reset the Art room for the next class if and when needed.
