My Students

We are a first grade family in suburban Iowa. Our school highly values diversity, creativity and leadership and our classrooms definitely reflect that. We have a diverse population of learners and believe that our diversity makes us stronger and smarter.

Creativity, engineering skills and purposeful play are such an important part of recognizing and educating the whole child.

We love building and creating and are always looking to add high quality art materials to improve our classroom space. We would love to have an art center!

My Project

First graders fill a classroom with ideas, creativity and the need to play. As teachers, the spaces and opportunities we supply our students with, determine how they develop over the course of the year. Help us provide a space for our students to create and express themselves through art.

We integrate art into all of our classroom subjects.

Painting planets in science, self portraits in social studies and stories in writing workshop. It is so important for us to explore subject areas in a creative and hands-on way. We also have time to create according to student interests each morning. Help us add desktop easels, paintbrushes, smocks and paint trays to our art center!
