I teach Pre-K in Wheeling, WV to a class of 19 energetic, smart, caring, and diverse 4-year-olds. We are committed at my school to provide the best developmentally appropriate experiences and materials that we can to our littlest learners. It is important that preschool children are exposed to a wide variety of developmentally appropriate materials to enrich their learning experiences. My preschool students are inquisitive and active and have great potential for developing into lifelong learners. However, some of my students though may not have the opportunity to work on these very important learning skills as they may not have access to these experiences at home.
My pre-k class will make great use of these basic supplies at the art station during center time. The paint, paper, brushes and scissors will allow the children to express themselves creatively through art. The art center is available to the students every day, and we go through supplies very quickly! The children love to use the different types of paint and paper to bring out their imaginations and help them come to life. The ability to manipulate different materials in an unstructured way allows for exploration and experimentation. Some important skills that preschoolers work on when participating in art activities are: fine motor skills, cognitive development, math skills and language skills. Please help me to be able to provide these basic art supplies to my students to develop their free expression.
