I am a second grade teacher in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I teach students from many diverse backgrounds. Although math and literacy are essential subjects, students need art as well. My class schedule does not allow for my students to take part in art. Children need art. I have constructed several lesson plans to incorporate painting, and drawing into science and social studies curriculum. One of the lessons that I am planning is linked to my social studies curriculum. I want to help students depict the New York City skyline in a mural. Students will be able to draw and paint while learning about the city in which they live. In order for these lessons to be successful my class needs art supplies. I am requesting supplies that my students could utilize for these projects. We need various supplies such as butcher paper, and markers. Would you please help me incorporate the arts into my curriculum?
