Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My children have a high interest in learning. Students come from high poverty neighborhoods, which results in a large percentage of free or reduced-price lunch recipients. My children are beginning to learn how to become life-long learners.

My students need materials so they are able to complete learning at home with their teacher.

This is their first year of school. They are starting their school journeys. As their teacher, I strive to give them as many new learning opportunities as possible in their first year of school. I teach them to be independent and responsible students.

My Project

These supplies will allow my students to practice their printing skills by using the dry erase pockets and boards as well as the dry erase markers. They will be able to erase their work and try again with the erasers.

The students will love to use the watercolor paints to create paintings.

They will be able to have their own place to keep their paintings since they will each have their own sketchbook.

They will also be able to draw with markers and create colorful drawings in their new sketchbooks as well. They love to draw and paint at this age. I would not want them to miss out since they are not at school.
