My students need watercolor paper, paintbrushes, paint and paint trays!
The benefits of art are endless. The beginning of motor planning and motor development skills are stimulated with art. But that is just the physical, social and emotional development can be developed as a child is allowed to express feelings and talents through this outlet.
My students are vivacious, eager ELL students who want to succeed in each language that they know.
They all come from an all Spanish-speaking homes where most of their parents are illiterate in Spanish let along English. They come to school for a safe, secure and routine part of their day, where they learn different concepts about math, social studies, science and language arts (in Spanish and English). This is not all that they are learning; they are also learning how to express themselves to better communicate their feelings and stories.
These art supplies (watercolor paper, paintbrushes, and paint trays) will be used to help these students create their own masterpieces. They only receive 35 minutes of art from our art teacher once a week, but with these tools we would be able to have art almost 3 times a week. I would be able help the students learn techniques of painting by incorporating art with writing. Allowing students to create and then write about their creation does wonders for their brain development. It allows students to be creative, yet have a clear focus about the structure of their story.
This project will allow students to be creative and expressive in an educated, productive manner.
These ELL students cannot always produce the words to describe their feelings or stories, but art is the same in any language. Supporting our classroom in this way will support our physical, emotional and educational needs.
