My Students

I am fortunate to work with a diverse population of students from all over the world. We learn and celebrate cultures, languages, and customs on a daily basis.

These All-Day K students are highly motivated and love coming to school!

More than 50% of my students have a native language other than English. Drawing and painting is the universal language for these littlest students who love "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" Help us create great masterpieces and literature projects inspired by the great Eric Carle (The Very Busy Spider.)

My Project

We are doing an author study prior to seeing the "Treasured Stories by Eric Carle" on stage. I hope my students will have new art supplies to create illustrations and stories inspired by his great stories. Printing EPSON color pictures of these masterpieces will help my students collage the art into our own favorite books in the style of Brown Bear and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

We need EPSON color printer ink to print beautiful copies of our Eric Carle inspired art.

Finger paints, paper, and colored pencils will enable us to write, draw and paint as we become Very Busy Artists.
