My Students

I work with 18 wonderful and inquisitive Pre-Kindergarten students in a very diverse school in Brooklyn, New York. We have children from many different cultures in our class and children with many special abilities.

Our Pre-K students love to learn new things daily!

For many of these children, it is their first year in school. They are learning about themselves, others, school rules, routines, and many new concepts in various subjects! They have many opportunities to explore what kind of learner they are and learn concepts in many different ways!

My Project

Children love creating art and art is such an important part of learning. It brings a hands-on component to learning any skill, concept, or fact. I plan to incorporate art into all of our learning themes this year.

In order to create art, my students need many art materials and supplies!

They need collage art materials such as pom poms, wiggly eyes, pipe cleaners, foam shapes, and laminating paper to preserve some forms of art. My students need basic supplies such as crayons, paint, scissors, a table cover, and storage for our art supplies. They also need playdough and playdough mats to create sculptures and exercise their fine motor skills. Having these art materials and supplies will allow my students to explore their creativity daily and learn many new concepts through art.

We would greatly appreciate any help you can give my Pre-K artists! Thank you!
