Ms. Sarah from Villas NJ is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

The Amazing World of Art

Help me give my students some incredible new art supplies that we can use to create, explore, and imagine the world around us. We especially need playdough as the students use it daily.

My Students

I am pleased to introduce you to my favorite friends in my class. Our room is comprised of 17 students. 17 different backgrounds, experiences, and personalities. Each of our students play a critical role in the dynamic of our classroom. The greatest commonality between our students is their desire to learn. They are eager to absorb whatever I am introducing.

In our classroom we promote an environment of independence, creativity, and curiosity.

Our students are taught responsibility and accountability for their actions. Our main focus is to produce students who are prepared for Kindergarten and understand the importance of respect, kindness, and honesty.

These exceptional preschoolers have impressed me with how quickly they have adjusted to our routine and structured environment. They are kind, caring, and compassionate. They are eager to learn, explore, and create. I am so excited to see where this year leads us and how these students will grow.

My Project

Art is an important part of preschool development and creativity. It provides the students with a way to express themselves and represent the things they see in the world around them.

Our students love to paint and create.

They find great joy in creating projects daily.

These materials will provide us with enough playdough to finish the year. The foam modeling material will add a new dynamic and texture to our playdough center. The texture brushes will add a fun new design element to the student's paintings. The tissue paper can be used throughout the year for countless crafts and activities.
