My classroom is made up of 18 students from diverse backgrounds which is located in a community center in our area. We serve low-income families and students with special needs in order to improve their educational experience. We also work with the families as a whole to improve each student's health and wellness. Our students' goal is to be ready for Kindergarten and become members of a successful classroom community. We love to love to dance, sing, and play outside. We are having a great school year!
The children in our class love to be in the art area! We have never had such an artistic group of kids! The art table is full everyday and the drying rack is always over-flowing. We have also discovered this year that they really enjoy using our scotch tape! As you can imagine, our paint brushes, BINGO dot markers, and drying rack have taken a beating. You can only imagine how much scotch tape we have gone through, as well!
We would really enjoy a new, sturdy drying rack, paint brushes, dot markers, and a tape dispenser to make our art area fresh and fun again!
We love that the children are so independent in the art area, and want them to continue to be so! The tape dispenser is kid-friendly and will allow them to use the tape without the adults helping them. What kid wouldn't love brightly colored tape to use on their art project?
Our drying rack is on it's last leg. It has taken a beating over the years, and after so many times of re tightening the screws, it is hardly standing! We would love a solid, drying rack that the children will be able to put their own work on without worrying that it will stick to other's papers! We would really enjoy some of these new items and they would definitely be put to use right away!
