My Students

"A person's a person no matter how small!" ~Dr. Seuss This is the motto in my kindergarten classroom.

We operate on a system of respect and responsibility.

My four and five year olds learn how to treat each other and that they are responsible for their actions. With the huge demands that are placed on my students as learners, we have to remember that they are still so young. We have to shape their character and teach them right from wrong. Our school is very diverse and provides my students with a lot of opportunities for growth. They are able to interact with students of all ages, with our building being pre-k to grade 8. With this being the first school experience for many of my students, learning has to be fun to keep them engaged! Each student also learns differently, which means that all material is presented in multiple ways to ensure learning success for all!

My Project

With the way the budgets are these days, sometimes the little things fall by the wayside. It is nice on a "Fun Friday" to do a special project or craft, but often I have to buy these materials(crayons, collage box, glue sticks, mod podge, markers, etc) myself. It would be wonderful to have a supply of art materials that we can use to be creative. The children love getting their hands on projects that allow them to be creative. It is also fun to let the students get creative in response to a book we have read. Being able to use their imagination for a craft project and then write about it also gets them excited.

Your donation could help foster a love for art in my kindergarteners.

Their creative development would grow so much if we had the ability to use art in our learning more often. You can help make this difference!
