Preserving Creativity

My Students

Have you ever had your work destroyed by a natural disaster? Well my students have had this happen to them. Due to Hurricane Sandy my students' work, which was stored in our school basement, along with our laminating supplies was completely demolished by flood waters.

My students are of diverse backgrounds who attend an elementary school in New York City.

They are extremely enthusiastic and proud to share their work with others. They use their imaginations to create exceptional pieces of work that represents their understanding of the world.

My Project

The donation of the laminating flim and pouches will allow my students to use resources on an ongoing basis. They will be able to learn through references and reviews of prior work displayed in the classroom. Along with the preservation of their own creations our curriculum charts and art work will also be used as a valuable tool for not only my current students but others as well.

The request of the laminating film and pouches will help my students see the importance and value that we place on the work that they create.

The children will also be able to continuously view their displayed work and to also refer to charts important enough to aid in their learning of the curriculum.
