My Students

95.9% of my 3rd-grade scholars live in areas of socioeconomic need where they have less access to resources. The majority of them receive free/reduced breakfast and lunch. My kids have access to fewer resources than kids in more affluent areas. They overcome systemic challenges on a daily basis and are still determined to succeed. I also have many immigrant kiddos and refugee kiddos. Many of them are English Language Learners - talented bilinguals, and in some cases, trilinguals! My students are empathetic, eager to learn and inspire me on a daily basis. They love to rescue every single bug they find. Moosetube and NTV are their favorite GoNoodle channels. And they love listening to read alouds.

My Project

I truly believe that art in the classroom is as powerful as math, science, and language arts. Art allows every child to express themselves in a unique way. There is no set formula - it's creative freedom!

My students clap and cheer whenever they find out art is part of the day!

Please help me give my students construction paper, watercolor paper, crayons, air-dry clay, black Sharpies, and metallic markers! All of these will be used for various art projects.

We do a lot of construction paper projects in the classroom. It allows for a lot of artistic expression without a ton of mess! It also gives the kids opportunities for fine motor practice which many of them still need!

My kids also love painting! The watercolor paper would enhance our painting lessons and projects by giving them the proper medium to paint on.

I requested black Sharpies because we outline much of our art with these before painting or coloring. I requested 12 sets of metallic markers for projects we can do on black or dark blue paper. 12 sets will be enough for partners to share!

Finally, I requested air-dry clay because I'd like to experiment with some new projects I've seen online for the kids, such as making thumb stones and symbols that represent them.
