Ms. M from San Juan Capistrano CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Expressing Our Creativity

Help me give my students art supplies to express their creativity. The books will be great for students to use context clues to understand text. The activities will be used to work on sensorimotor and hand-eye coordination.

My Students

A combination class of transitional kindergarten and kindergarten is such an exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. My students are learning to recognize and write letters and numbers. We are also learning how to become strong students. Our group loves to play outside, learn new games, and dance to energetic songs.

My classroom is a very energetic classroom of all boys.

We love to do new things, especially when we are able to stand up and get our wiggles out. We love puzzles and building things with Leggos. We are working on staying focused and coloring in the lines. We are excited to learn how to pain in the lines in the future!

My Project

These materials will provide students to express their creativity through various art projects. Students will be able to use context clues in the books to be learn how to read. The activities will be used to work on hand-eye coordination and work on staying focused.

The dot paint will be a great resource to teach us how to spell our names and work on identifying letters.

The watercolor paint will teach the students how to blend colors to create the preferred color. The clipboards will be useful to be able to write and move around the classroom so the students can work longer on assignments instead of being restless at their tables.
