My Students

My thirty-eight kindergarteners are in the Extended Foreign Language Spanish program at an elementary school in a low-income area in the heart of Miami, Florida, where ninety-eight percent of the students are Hispanic and more than eighty percent are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch.

Despite their economic challenges, these fun-loving 5 and 6-year-olds are at that wonderful stage where they are eager to learn and are inquisitive.

My students are active, hands-on kids who love to learn through experience.

My Project

My students need to exposed to the arts. Everyday we learning about, reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. My students are working hard everyday and there isn't "art" in our daily schedule. However, If I were to have the supplies ready, I can incorporate art into our curriculum.

These hard working energetic kids need be kids and get involved with the arts!

The students will be able to paint master pieces with the Melissa and Doug Easel paper and the Crayola Washable Finger Paint. They will be to work on their fine motor skills with the Melissa and Doug Scissors Skill Activity set and Pop Beads Jewelry Making Kit. They will also get ready for the holidays by creating " art pieces" for their homes with the Christmas Penguin Ornament Craft Kits.. They will also take part in other arts and craft projects through out the year.
