My Students

A told B and B told C, I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree! My students absolutely love this book, I love reading it to them because it helps them learn the alphabet and teaches them to love books. Help my students be creative and feel empowered through art by creating their own ABC book.

My students are in kindergarten and first grade.

They have disabilities including but not limited to Autism, Specific Learning Disabilities, Developmental Delays and Speech and Language Impairments. Our school is located in a rough area of South Los Angeles were the majority of students come from very low income households.

My Project

When a child leaves kindergarten he should name and know the sound of each letter. After we are done with the academic lessons focused on letters and sounds, I would like for my students to express their creativity by creating their own letter/sound book. My students will feel empowered through art by being able to draw a picture that makes the beginning sound of each letter of the alphabet. In order to help them achieve this goal I am requesting blank books, journals and folders to help them make their books and organize their thoughts. I am requesting take home folders so that they can also work on them at home. The markers, crayons and paints will give them a variety of materials to draw and represent their letter and sounds in a hands on manner. This project will be empowering my students through art by having them design their own books and connecting their artistic side to reading through letters and sounds.

I would love for my students to connect the standard of letters and sounds to an artistic and creative project like making their own ABC book.

By helping to bring these tools to my class you will be empowering my students through art when creating the book.
