Mrs. Forster from Plantation FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Let’s Inspire With ART!

My students need magna-blocks, wooden blocks, how-to-draw books, art inspiring books like ‘the dot’ and ‘ish’, jewelry making, and pencil sharpener.

My Students

My students range from PreK to 5th grade. So the age range is from 4 years old to 12 years old. Some children have special needs. Some students struggle to stay on task without motivation. Some students lack the effort to complete tasks, but when they see what is waiting for them… they thrive. Many of my students love to explore what art has to offer. My students are very diverse and come from many different backgrounds. The students are amazing!

My Project

The children need a center to encourage positive behavior. This center is for when they are done with their art work and have stayed on task and followed rules. Each item requested will inspire more art from them (with exception to the pencil sharpener). Blocks will encourage the architect. The books encourage that not all art is the same, but it is all beautiful as well as literacy. The jewelry kits can help inspire our future stylist and jewelers. How-to-draw books to help further our artist to try some new drawings. It may seem silly, but a positive center can help drive these students to complete tasks.
