My Project

Help my 5th graders create masterpieces! These supplies will enhance the creative and innovative environment in my 5th grade classroom and inspire students to freely express themselves through art. Art leads to increased engagement and empowerment in the classroom, and my students jump at any chance they can to experiment with new techniques, art forms and tools. Art is also proven to increase self-esteem in students, and it's associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking skills in students.

Arts is an integral part in a child's development, and it helps fuel their curiosity and provides them with an outlet to observe, express, and explore the world through creating things.

These supplies with be used for a variety of art and craft projects that will inspire students to use their imaginations and express themselves through art.
