Help me give my students a new painting easel and paint to be able to explore their creativity and imagination!
My pre-kindergartners are eager and energetic students who love to learn. My students are bright, wonderful children who deserve new toys and a beautiful environment for them to grow.
For many students, it is their first time in school and away from home.
Many of my students are socio-economically disadvantaged, and all students in our school qualify for the free breakfast and lunch programs. My classroom is made up of students from Mexico, India, Egypt, the Dominican Republic and numerous other places around the world. My students may come from different geographic locations, but they all are so happy to be in school. They are eager to participate in all activities. My job as an educator is to make their first experience in school a positive one.
My new students would love this new easel as well as new paint in order to make wonderful creations in the Art Area. Our old easel is falling apart and it does not look very inviting. I would love to encourage my students to explore their creative side by having an Art Area that is visually appealing.
There are many benefits to painting in the Pre-K classroom.
Some of the greatest benefits integrated with painting are: Painting can help children communicate their emotions or feelings. Through the use of different colors, they can express themselves without the use of words.
Painting aids children acquire hand-eye coordination, an important skill in their age. This is developed while they learn to paint the parts that they see; making sure their hand movement is at par with their vision.
Painting aids children develop mobility skills. Their hand muscles are being used, which allows them a scope to develop both mentally and physically. Painting helps children acquire skills on how to focus on trivial details, painting on a canvas or a piece of paper requires varied painting skills. Painting can be a great podium for children to progress and discover their creativity. They learn about various color mixtures and how they go together. Painting can help children learn sizes, shapes, patterns and designs. These are all critical aspects of our curriculum.
