Restocking Our Classroom Art Supplies

Help me give my students a restocked world for their Art Center in our classroom. Our Velcro is what we really need in our classroom the most for our name tags and center folder games.

My Students

Here at our Early Childhood Learning Center we house our daycare for our employees, along with the Pre-K and Head Start programs. We currently have students from 6 weeks to 5 years old. Our goal here at First Steps is to continue educating children at a young age and help in the areas that they may be struggling in. I currently help co-teach 18 Pre-K students ranging from the age of 3-5. In our classroom, our students are very outgoing and love to learn. Especially if it has to do with art and STEAM project. We love getting to do experiment during our small group time and it is something they constantly look forward to. Our class family has a combined class of English and Spanish speakers only and getting them to do an experiment together helps build their self esteem and open up to each other.

My Project

All of the materials that we are needing will help our students be able to get materials they may need to take home for their monthly Parent Involvement Projects. We will also be able to make art projects based off of our curriculum and our lesson plans for the week.

For our monthly parent involvement project, we send home a project for our students.

These project are usually based off a holiday that is happening during to month or season. For example, our January project we are sending home a snowman to be decorated and named by the family. Usually these project can be made with what ever materials are at home. If materials are needed we have the students pick what they may need from our Art supplies so they are able to make their snowman.

For lessons that come out of our curriculum, we may put together a art project and need supplies to put together. In this weeks lesson we are talking about Living and Nonliving. As a class, together we will make a Venn Diagram comparing living and nonliving things. Our class will be able to share what scissors we may have and practice our cutting skills by cutting out pictures to put on our Venn Diagrams.

We would greatly appreciate what we may be able to receive for our class.
