My Students

How do we know that it's time to clean up? We don't!

My students live in a poverty-stricken, urban neighborhood, and many come from broken and unstable homes.

They attend a Title I school and are eligible for free lunch. Our school's population is made up of African-American, Hispanic, and Kurdish students. Many of them are learning English as a second language. My students love art and are very creative!

My Project

My student's will be able to look at the clock and see when Art class is about to end. They can start to clean up on time so that they will be ready when their class is over. With only two sinks, we spend a lot of class time washing hands. the hand sanitizing wipes will cut this time in half.

With a broken clock and only two sinks, my classes get a little chaotic at the end of each period.

The children can't judge how much time the have to clean up. They often spend too much time at the sink, so some children don't have time to wash their hands.
