Diversity Awareness and Acceptance
Help me give my students the opportunity to wear flesh colored bandaids for their many scraps, cuts, and scratches throughout the school day. These bandaids come in different colors to match a variety of different colored skin.
This is my fourth year teaching Kindergarten at an Elementary School in Arkansas. My class is made up of 22 energetic, very curious five and six-year old's. We are already beginning to feel like family in the fast and furious few months we've already been together. We have white, black, and Hispanic students in our class; with an almost even split of 12 girls and 10 boys. Lots of my students come from homes of middle socioeconomic status, but a handful would be considered living in poverty. Some students come from split and divorced families, some are being raised by single moms, some live with both a mother and father and some are adopted. I want my students to always feel like our classroom is a safe, loving environment!
This will allow students the opportunity to use a bandaid that matches the color of their skin. This small gesture of offering students a bandaid in the color of their skin tone offers the opportunity for equality as well as offering the opportunity to display the diversity among another which will foster acceptance and confidence at their young age.
If funded this project will open the door for social emotional learning and acceptance of ourselves and one another.
All the while meeting the needs of the students who receive various scratches, cuts, and scraps from recess and other various activities throughout the school week. I will also be able to offer my students constructive paper in different flesh colors to foster multicultural awareness!
