My Students

Kindergarten is where it all starts! My class is made up of 20 eager little learners. Even though they come from very different backgrounds, my class is a place where all children can have the same opportunities and experiences on a daily basis. Kindergarten students are naturally curious about everything. They learn by doing and they are so excited about everything we do. I want my children to have everything that they need because having the proper resources can make all the difference.

My Project

Kindergarten students love art! They would paint every day if they could. I want to give my students actual canvas boards to paint on so they feel like real artists. We have an art center in our class that students can work in each day. Most of the materials for this center are consumable so maintaining this center gets rather expensive. I am requesting canvas boards, paint, and paint brushes for our classroom art center. Children will be able to visit the center and create their very own masterpieces to take home. You can help us keep art alive and well in kindergarten by supporting this project.
