My Students

Our school is one of the most diverse schools in a large, urban city. It is a wonderful place with a great administrator, teachers, support staff and parents who work hard to provide our students with the resources they need to be successful.

My students are a group of motivated, hardworking and enthusiastic second graders.

They enjoy playing math games, participating in interactive read-aloud, creating innovative projects and learning about the world around them. Each day, I consider myself very lucky to be able to work with such an amazing group of children.

My Project

These art materials will be a valuable addition to our classroom. We can use the modeling clay as part of our geometry unit. Students can use the clay to make different polygons, assemble them into geometric robots and then paint them with the watercolors. The aluminum foil sheets and Sharpie markers can be used to create embossed tin tiles, as we study fractions and symmetry.

Having access to a sufficient amount of high quality materials is essential for supporting students as they create and explore.

I am fortunate to have experience planning and implementing art lessons that enhance the curriculum. It is something I enjoy and that my students request all the time. However, art materials get used up! I am requesting these materials to ensure my students will have enough of what is needed and a variety of materials to use.
