Ms. Cristales from Los Angeles CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

In The Midst of a Storm We Fight On!

Help me give my students the opportunity to achieve success in the setting of their homes. Many of them do not have the economic means to purchase any manipulatives nor art supplies needed in a lesson.

My Students

I might not be the first teacher to say, "My students are the best scholars." But with a passionate heart I can say, they are. It is my goal to build in them a strong academic foundation in the midst of the crisis we are living as well as helping them shape themselves into young men and women in my daily interaction with them. I care for them in a very special way for they are gift given to me to help educate for 10 months of their young lives. My scholars become passionate about their learning having the end in mind. Our goal is going to college. Even though we are living in a very strong emotional and psychological storm due to COVID-19 my students are eager to learn this new school year.

My Project

In the midst of a storm my scholars and I fight on to achieve success in the virtual setting we are learning through. The resources requested will be given to students to enhance math lessons through the use of the ten base cubes and counters. At a young age such as my second graders the use of hands on activities is very important to understand the concrete objective of a lesson or concept.

The use of the watercolors will expose my scholars to use different art media and not just crayons and pencil.

Even through we are teaching and learning in such a different way with alll the support given I am confident we will succeed.
