Ms. Craft from Indianapolis IN is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creative in Kindergarten!

My Students

I teach 23 wonderful kindergarten students. This is my first year teaching full day kindergarten at a public school. My students have varying abilities and they are very excited about their first year in school.

My students have a wide range of academic abilities and are eager to learn.

I strive to plan activities that are hands on, engaging, and meaningful. My students enjoy all hands on activities and they are excited about learning.

My students would love new materials for our classroom.

My Project

My kindergarten students are showing a great interest in art, specifically painting and I need supplies. I want my students to be able to express themselves creatively, specifically in art. But I need help getting materials and supplies in their hands. My students need paint, an easel, paper, paint brushes, paint cups and containers, and dot paint. They would love a chance to express themselves creatively and these materials will help them do so.This project is something that all students can use, despite their academic ability level. These materials can be used daily during work stations, mornings, work, indoor recess, Discovery Time, and during many different subject areas.

You can help make a difference by donating to this worthwhile art project.

You can help make a child's wish come true. I strive to plan activities that are hands-on, meaningful, and are based on high student interest to help motivate my students to learn. This project was created based on student interest. I can't wait to see my students light up when I show them the new art supplies. Thank you for any donation that you make.
