My Students

I teach Transitional Kindergarten to a group of diverse 4 and 5 year-old students! These students are rapidly developing into readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, historians, adventurers, and so much more! Their young brains and bodies are learning how to be successful within the context of a classroom so that they can later become contributing and successful adults...TK is where the adventure begins!

My TK students enter my class with varied backgrounds and experiences that allow them to embark on a unique adventure during their year of learning in my class where each individual is valued.

Instruction is focused on fostering development in the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and moral domains while giving each student rich, real-life learning opportunities. My students are eager to learn about the world around them!

My Project

I am a first year teacher within my school district, teaching Transitional Kindergarten (TK) comprised of 4 and 5 year old students. My list of supplies, starting out on this journey teaching TK, has been minimal. I have found that early learners thrive on the opportunity to express themselves creatively through art, though my supplies for art are very basic. I would love to be able to help foster the love of art in my students and give them a chance to express themselves through multiple mediums of art.

The students that I serve have varied backgrounds, experiences, and means to express themselves.

By providing my students with a variety or art supplies, I will be giving them a chance to create and communicate ideas, values, and use their imagination!

This project's requested materials will supplement the district adopted curriculum for TK, visual arts curriculum. We teach the principles of art while integrating all other important content areas but using visual arts as the grounding tool.

The materials I am asking for are focused around a 4-sided easel. This is a very important item to help aid my young learners in the development of their fine motor skills, large motor skills, creativity, as well as cognitive skills. The assorted color paints and paint cups will allow students to have some autonomy in creating art pieces on the easel. The finger paints will give my students a chance to mix creativity with sensory! The aprons I am asking for will help shield my students' clothes from rouge paint but will also help my students learn how to put on their own apron and then hang it back on a hook when finished (an important self-help skill!). All of the art supplies I am asking for will be used across all contents!
