Mrs. Jack from Philadelphia PA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students more books; how wonderful that they are asking for more books in the art room!
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges in school and outside of school. Many are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free breakfast and lunch based on their socioeconomic status. Despite this, they still come to the classroom often with a smile, eagerly anticipating, "What are we drawing today?"
The students I work with are direct, active, require positive encouragement, clever, and genuinely want to succeed.
I want my kids to feel welcomed, noticed, validated and celebrated when they come into my classroom, regardless of their interest in art or what their life outside of school looks like.
I am thrilled that the art room is also now known for great books. Since last year, our book collection has been steadily growing as well as the demand for more.
Students are asking for more books, could it get any better?!
I use books in various ways in the art room; younger grades often have books read to them at the start of class then make a drawing based off that story. The older students have more independence with books, often they will come to me to ask if they can look through the books for inspiration for their artwork.
