My Students

I work with an incredible group of diverse pre-kindergarten students. Most of the students come from low-income families, so educational materials are hard to come by.

Early childhood grades have always been something that is very near and dear to my heart.

There are so many different cultures and personalities, but the one thing that my students all have in common is that they all love to learn and work together as a classroom community. They each have a lot to offer and share.

My Project

I am requesting various art supplies such as folders, dinosaur excavation kit, kinetic sand and a first aid kit for our classroom. My students are absolutely fascinated with dinosaurs, and we would use the dinosaur excavation kit for painting. The kinetic sand will be used as a part of our 3D collage art project. We will also use the sand to make rain sticks for our music center. The folders will be used to store their beautiful art work. We want to keep all of their drawings safe during the transport between school and home. Lastly, we are turning our dramatic play area into a hospital. The students will model and create their own first aid kit using the play-doh that was funded from our previous donorschoose projects.

Art is a wonderful way for my students to express their creativity.

With these supplies, we will be able to create and decorate many of our art projects including the thank you cards to our DonorsChoose sponsors.
