Ms. Annie from Hoopa CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Encouraging Student Creations

Help me give my students materials to make slime and paint rocks. I have promised them slime as a reward for meeting our goals in behavior and learning. They also wish to paint rocks to beautify our campus.

My Students

My students are the kindest and most caring, empathetic 9, 10, and 11 year-olds that I have ever met. They have managed to maintain these amazing characteristics even throughout large changes. Our school has been undergoing construction for the past few years due to the discovery of black mold in our wings. Our students have had to adapt to many new changes in their classrooms and school routines, but that has not held them back. They have had wing closures, classroom changes, and weeks worth of canceled school days and they still show up every day excited to learn.

We are located on an Indian Reservation that has high levels of poverty and we fight to provide our students with every opportunity that is available at other schools.

My Project

My students need creative outlets and ways of incorporating art into their curriculum. They have begging for the chance to make slime if they meet their behavior and learning goals. Using the glue, Borax, dye, and shaving cream, we will be making class slime as a science experiment and learning about the chemical process.

They also enjoy painting rocks to help beautify our school campus.

Unfortunately, we started out with a very limited supply of paint and have already exhausted it. Our school has just finished construction and now they want to make art to add to the fresh cement and fencing. Some students have said that this project has inspired them to pursue art as a career.
