Mrs. Couch from Metairie LA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Cut, Color, and Glue, Please!

My students need basic materials for class projects and activities we do in class. I plan to give my six groups a set of colored pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, and glue, to share.

My Students

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” - Mahatma Gandhi; I aspire for each of my students to go forward in the world being not only the best person they can be, but a person they are proud of.

My students have various backgrounds and learning abilities, however, the classroom is a place in which all students are included, valued, and respected.

I strive for each child to understand that they are capable of learning and being supported within my classroom and our school. I also do my best to reach all of my students by providing them with multiple types of methods of learning that will match their different needs and learning styles.

My Project

As it is the end of the year, my students have run out or have misplaced their glues, colored pencils, crayons, scissors and more. On top of that, there is no system of organization to these materials.

My plan is to give each table group, there are a total of six groups, an organized container with materials they can use on a daily basis.

Each bin will have glues, colored pencils, crayons, and scissors.

In class, we often do artistic projects and assignments in which students work together to complete hands on tasks. In doing so, they will use these materials. The materials I receive will also go to towards next year as well.
