My students are energetic, creative, and determined 6 and 7-year-olds who have hopes and dreams for their futures. The majority of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches and experience trauma, hardships, and challenges outside of school while trying to learn to read and write. The resources requested here are needed to help deliver content equitably to our students and to help enrich the educational experience of each child within the class. Thank you for considering us when making a donation.
My students love making art. We are always looking for different ways to express each child's creativity through hands-on activities and art projects. The children are learning about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his impact on civil rights and the children have requested that we celebrate the different colors of their skin through an art project.
With the papers, paints, ink pads, and stamps, students will create a self-portrait along with a hopes and dreams poster to share with their families and school peers.
We will also use these art materials to draw reflections to our daily read aloud books, make STEAM design challenges and express joy through learning and art.
