Ms. Gordon from Corona NY is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the opportunity to design and create crafts and learning tools for our classroom
As a teacher in a Title 1 School, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
Many of my students are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.
These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
Working with young students makes you want to be creative and fun and enjoy everything. There are so many holidays and fun events that you like to give little gifts for. The students should be making gifts for people they love, not buying them all. It would be great if we could customize gifts for the students families. I would like to start them with coming up with the ideas and using the Cricut machine software to come up with ideas. The new craze with teachers is using the Cricut to make all different things for the classroom and the parents. We would use the extra mats so we can get more than one ready at a time. Students would be able to pick the color and type of vinyl to use from the extra vinyl. I am excited to help the students be creative.
