Kindergarten Artist at Work!

My students need basic school and art supplies so that we can continue to create masterpieces in Kindergarten.

My Students

I teach Kindergarten to 24 of the sweetest, most loving, caring and smart 5 year old kids. They love coming to school to learn, to be part of something special and I strive each day to make each day the best ever.

Our school is 99% Latino and our entire school qualifies for free lunch.

Many students live in multi-generational homes and their parents work 2-3 jobs just to make ends meet. I do my best to make my classroom a positive and nurturing environment for them everyday, however, our community is not always the safest place for them to play outside.

My Project

My students need basic school/art supplies so that we can continue to work and foster our imaginations. We need new crayons for the new year to motivate us in our drawing and writing. In Kindergarten drawing is writing and writing is drawing so the children need new supplies to encourage them to do their best.

By having new supplies I know it will help motivate them to do an outstanding job and increase their productivity in all academic areas.

Kindergarten is such a delicate age in which they cross over the ability to draw and put it into words. It is very rare to see this in any other grade level.
