My Students

The students in my class are full of energy, wonder, and enthusiasm. They come from various diverse cultures, speak various languages, and many of their families are struggling economically.

They are a community of learners where everyone is valued, where everyone has a voice, where everyone is a self-manager, and where everyone is respected and welcomed.

The school they attend is in the state of Washington. It is culturally diverse, with almost 70% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, and over 30% are English language learners.

My Project

I am requesting canvases, paintbrushes, acrylic paint and paper plates so that I can lead my artistic first graders in an acrylic painting on framed canvas. When finished, they will have a painting that will be ready to hang in their own homes.

Each child will be given a framed 8X10 canvas, a palette of acrylic paints and different size paint brushes to create their own masterpieces.

This project will allow my adorable first graders to have the opportunity to be creative, problem solve and use their imaginations to create their own original painting. I have requested a few extra canvases to accommodate parent volunteers to help the children when needed.
