Let’s Get Artsy

Help me give my students sun catchers that they can paint and rainbow scratch paper. These will be rewards for completing their fourth grade math curriculum.

My Students

My fourth graders had no idea when they left school on a Thursday afternoon, a field trip day of all days, that they would not return to campus this school year. Therefore, when they left school I did not have a chance to send home materials and supplies that they might need in the future. The same has been true for me as well. Therefore, we have been doing the best that we can working on Zearn, an online math program, Google Classroom and Zoom. To say that our school year has changed is an understatement, but we are making it work as best we can. Most of my geometry lessons are now done with handmade pictures created with sharpies on notecards. My students then use their Chromebooks to work online to fill in any gaps they may have. We are making it work, but it is difficult.

My Project

Having switched to distance learning I did not expect many of my students to complete their online math curriculum. However, I have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of them that have. They have successfully completed seven modules of math even when no longer required. That makes me such a proud teacher.

It is these students that I would like to reward for going above and beyond.

I have no doubt that they will be ready for the fifth grade when school resumes. Thus I would like to reward them with some art supplies. Will you help me to get them some sun catchers that they can paint and some Rainbow scratch off paper as a thank you for going above and beyond during these unusual times?
