My Students

The students served by this project are in extended transitional kindergarten, transitional kindergarten, kindergarten and first grade.

Our new content-based playroom will provide language experiences for our primary students and will focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) projects.

My school is a Title I school in a low-income area of the city of Los Angeles. All the students who attend this school receive free breakfast and lunch. About 48% of the school population are English language learners. Our school is a Gold Ribbon School and is very interested in developmentally appropriate practices for our youngest students. All of our primary teachers work very closely to implement high standards so students receive the foundational learning they need to be successful in life and reach their academic goals. Thank you so much for your consideration of our project.

My Project

Our students are about to embark on the wonderful and exciting journey of inquiry-based learning. It will be their interests and inquiry which will guide them to small group culminating projects. Along the way, they will create works of art that will illustrate their learning. Watercolor is an excellent medium for this because it is perfect for quick sketch-like paintings. We need watercolor paper and paints to create these works of art. We can use the cardboard cutters to make creative displays for our artwork. I am very excited by this project and I hope you are, too!
