Teaching Kindergarten is challenging and fun when creativity, imagination, and self expression is part of learning in the classroom. Kindergarten is not only centered on phonics, reading, writing, and math, it is a place where learning, with emphasis on student performance, takes place. As a Kindergarten teacher I am required to create an age appropriate, educationally challenging envoirnment. As a way of enhancing key curriculum based areas it is required that I develop creative learning centers that increase student performance. Well, this becomes a little difficult when "ART" materials are not furnished or replenished when needed. I just completed my first year teaching kindergarten, and I realized that we were only able to use paint twice throughout the year because we only had two colors. We made orange paper mache pumpkins for Halloween and brown turkeys and cornicorpias for Thanksgiving. The rest of the school year the students used crayons and color pencils or markers. Encouraging individual creativity through art not only builds self-expression but also confidence, creativity, and imagination. With the appropriate materials my students will enjoy a wide variety of art experiences. Painting is an essential part of learning in kindergarten. When materials are readily available students are allowed to learn while having fun. Art and craft activities intergrated into todays curriculum is a meaningful way to increase motor skill, expressive language, verbal language, imagination, confidence, and learning. Please help enhance as well as increase students learning and performance through artistic expression. Help me make learning fun by creating an "Art Center" that develops future generations of unique innovative students with engaging artistic materials. Thank You for your consideration we all thank you dearly.
