My Students

My first grade classroom is home to a very enthusiastic community of learners who are eager to learn and work hard every day.

My students need a lot of hands-on activities and visual supports in order to learn new concepts.

Our school is located on the lower East Side of Manhattan in New York City, serving students in grades Pre-K to 5th grade. We share STAR values- Self managed, Team players, Accountable and Respectful- and we never stop improving for the children.

My Project

My students love to spend time thinking and talking about their feelings. A great way for them to express their feelings is through art. We need art supplies like the rainbow scratch paper and the watercolor brush pens so students can draw about their feelings through different mediums. We need sensory materials like the Mad Matter Sensory Dough and the Rainbow Liquid Sensory Viewers for our calming corner where students check in with a mood meter and self regulate their feelings.

These materials will help a child go from being angry, sad or silly to being ready to learn again.

Please consider giving to our project so my students have what they need to learn!
