My Students

My students are from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Most are second language learners who need visuals and extra support in learning the language. The area around the school is mostly surrounded by apartments. My students need extra supplies in order to jump-start their learning and get them ready to start reading.

Being able to comfort a child by putting a band-aid on their cut is so simple.

Sometimes all our students want and need is a chance for their story to be heard. My students get excited and enthusiastic about the littlest thing, and I am hoping that by continuing to get projects funded, I can help further their love of learning and play.

My Project

Something I have done this year that is different is adding arts and crafts every Friday. We have a parent come in each Friday to help with arts and crafts- the students love it and the parents have been so supportive and helpful.

I try to have a different arts and craft activity that incorporates the arts and fine motor skills.

I am asking for a variety of peel and stick activities- letters, shapes, cubes and sand art- to help students create a project and practice their fine motor skills. I am hoping to get the design your own calendars so students can draw a different picture for each month and give it to their parents as a present. I think the sun catchers craft will be a hit with the students and an amazing activity that they can take home to show their family!
