Ms. May from Union City NJ is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindergarten & First Grade Artists in Need of Supplies!

My students need drawing paper and watercolor paper to deepen their understandings of their curriculum.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I ask them, "Who is the best kindergarten class in the whole world?" and they reply, "We are!" I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

I teach in a district where 97 percent of the students receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch.

My students need basic materials to aid in enhancing their everyday motor skills and to unleash the creative beasts within them.

My Project

Students need paper, paint, brushes, and other materials to create, express, and enhance lifelong skills. I like to extend lessons to emphasize student learning in their homeroom class. Because art is fluid, I connect their learning to science, math, and literature based on the lessons they do with their homeroom teacher.

Students also need materials to draw and create works of art that will deepen their understandings of the curriculum in their math, science, and English classes.

Funding this project means giving younger children the opportunity to extend their academic learning while having fun and also developing lifelong skills that they will never forget.
