Mrs. Mallory from King City CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science is an Artistic Endeavor

My students need a well-stocked makerspace in our classroom where they can show their creative talents in a challenging and super fun way doing STEM and art activities.

My Students

My third grade students are creative, inquisitive, and talented. They come from a small farming community in which most of the parents work in agriculture in some way. They lead a pretty sheltered life. Many of these students could end up working in the farm fields instead of going to college.

The best part about teaching third grade is the silly, funny, energetic students I get to work with every day.

They have a lot of potential, but they are sometimes reluctant to take a chance. On the outside, they appear confident and can speak two languages. On the inside, I feel that many of them are just scared little kids.

My Project

I would like to create a makerspace for STEM and Art in my classroom. This would be a special area of the classroom where imaginations can run free and creativity is encouraged. It starts with a good shelving unit stocked with supplies. Clear bins filled with supplies to create projects using duct tape, brads, Legos, buttons, beads, craft sticks, etc., will encourage my students to be innovative.

I believe if my students are allowed to make choices for STEM challenges as well as art projects, they will gain confidence and become independent thinkers.

They will be stronger both academically and personally for these experiences. When third graders get to make some of their own decisions, it builds confidence, strength, and character.
