Mrs. Castillo from New Haven CT is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students opportunities to create art using crayons, paint, and markers. Giving them the chance to build together and explore manipulatives will allow them to build relationships and a curiosity for learning.
This 2019-2020 school year I will be my first year teaching in a new school as head teacher in a prek3 classroom in the inner city. I wholeheartedly believe that early childhood education is the foundation where children begin to build their love for learning. For many of the students that will be entering my classroom this will be their first experience exploring hands-on learning in other areas aside of pretend play such as literacy, science, sensory, art, and math.
Please help me give my students an opportunity to learn through play and creativity.
I would like to have the ability to allow my prek students to explore hands on learning help with art supplies, manipulatives, and sensory play items will enable me to meet this goal.
My students will have the opportunity to create art projects that represent their individuality using the variety of art materials. We will work on self portraits, process art activities, and simple drawings to allow them to express what they enjoy.
Learning to work as a team and express themselves verbally will be a key point in our classroom.
Children will also be able to use the manipulatives to practice simple math concepts such as sorting, color recognition, and counting. With all of the materials we will practice daily social and emotional concepts like sharing, conflict resolution, and expressing wants and needs.
