I teach at a public school in Brooklyn. We service students from two large projects and several shelters. This coming September, I will be teaching 1st grade. I observed these students in kindergarten and have found them to be bright and motivated despite their low socio-economic status. Our school is not able to get many of the supplies that schools in high socio-economic areas receive. This means that often we cannot do important activities such as arts and crafts. In first grade the social studies curriculum calls for the study of \"Yourself,Your Family, and Your Neigborhood.\" During the units, I would like the students to create several self-portraits and portraits of the people they see in the neighborhood. In order to do this, I am requesting packs of multi-cultural markers, crayons, and colored pencils. This way the students can color true to life and celebrate the differences that they find. The supplies will also help to increase the students\' fine motor skills and creative abilities.
