Hands-on Minds-on Materials

The cost of these supplies is $353, including shipping and <a target="new" href="" onclick="g_openWindow('', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Would you rather write with a dull pencil or a bright green marker? Would you rather draw a picture with a broken crayon or watercolors? Would you rather write a note to a friend on ripped looseleaf paper or crisp design paper? Do you want to share something you learn by just talking about it or showing it on a poster? My 26 third grade students want to use the green marker, watercolors, design paper, and poster paper. They love exciting materials and they are instantly engaged with creative supplies. My low income, inner city, students have innocent minds that are full of ideas. They want to express their ideas in every way and they would be thrilled to use the paints, markers, glue, rulers, and paper in this proposal. My students would benefit from these materials in so many ways. I anticipate using these materials over and over and in various subjects and ways. They will show their work for a math story problem, they will write to their pen-pals, they will show their comprehension of their reading story. I would love to use these materials to teach my students and I know my students will be thrilled!
