My students are from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Most are second language learners, who need visuals and extra support learning the language. The area around the school is mostly apartments. My students need extra supplies in order to jump start their learning and get them ready to start reading and writing. Students are so enthusiastic about learning and wanting to grasp the language, sounds and words. With these supplies, students will have the opportunity to get to where they need to be in kindergarten.
My students love the few times throughout the year that they get to paint, mostly one on one, with me on a project. Having the supplies, like an easel, no spill cups, paint, brushes, and paper will make it easy for me to create a paint station where students can do art on their own. By donating to our project, you will help students have the opportunity to express their creativity and improve important skills, such as hand eye coordination, and practicing the skills that they are currently learning in class, like shapes, letters, and numbers. Painting also helps with motor skills.
