Mrs. Rivera from Los Angeles CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sketch Much?

Help me give my students sketch books so they can have weekly practice in sketching and a guillotine trimmer so that I can cut their artwork and display it on our walls.

My Students

I teach at a very diverse Title I school in the inner city, which serves students in grades PreK-5 and provides rigorous academics and a safe learning environment. All children receive free breakfast and lunch due to this neighborhood's socioeconomic status. They come from a wonderful mix of ethnic and economic backgrounds, and despite any challenges that my students may face, they come to school daily prepared to do their best.

Each morning my students actively come into our classroom eager and excited to start a new day of learning.

They walk into the classroom bursting with energy, creativity and full of life. My students truly inspire me with their passion and insatiable love for learning.

My Project

My students need sketch books to do their sketching for the purpose of seeing real growth in their skills.

Sketching items in one book will allow my students to see their ability grow.

I think it will give them a huge sense of accomplishment to see growth in their skills of sketching. Currently, my students use pieces of paper that get out of order and are hard to maintain. These sketch books will help my students take pride in their work, see their own growth, and most importantly show them their work is valued. We also need a paper cutter so that all their art work can be cut and displayed in our room. I want them to see their art work is important!
