Ms. C. from Chicago IL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Teaching Literacy Through Art

My students need books in the classroom to help with art literacy and arts integration in reading. I have requested books like The Game of Sculpture, A Day With No Crayons, and The Most Magnificent Thing.

My Students

My classroom is a place where we strive to integrate different and new methods of learning and thinking.

While many of the students in my school are low income, they are engaged and excited to learn each and every day.

My school strives for success in closing the achievement gap by raising the expectations for our students. My school believes in education where all the needs of the students are met academically, socially, and emotionally.

My Project

My students need books in the art room to help with art literacy and arts integration in reading. My students will use the books to help their literacy skills through connecting art to storytelling. These books will also help teach young students about art history as well as be a stepping stone to their creative process. I have requested books like The Game of Sculpture, A Day With No Crayons, and The Most Magnificent Thing.

Donations will help improve my classroom because the more students can read and expand their knowledge, the more prepared they will be for life outside the classroom.

The stronger the students' reading skills, the more successful they will be at reaching their goals.
