My Students

First graders love art! It would be wonderful to provide them with art supplies. We need glue sticks, folders, foam stickers, vinyl stickers, and craft materials to unleash their creative side.

I am the first-grade teacher to 19 students in a family-oriented, hard-working area of East Texas.

A majority of my students come from loving, small-town homes. Our school is mainstreamed where students with special needs are in regular classrooms with the other students. We have over 500 amazing students in our school.

My Project

Throughout the year, we create art projects based on our learning units. We study neighborhoods, life cycles, pets, farms, many animals, and much, much more. After my students write about a topic, they have the opportunity to illustrate and create models of their work. These art supplies will enable them to turn their ideas and thoughts into artwork. Their anticipation and excitement about bringing their ideas to life motivates them to write and be creative. They will use the printer ink, vinyl, foam stickers, charts, folders, and other art materials to create 3D models, puppets, and to express their ideas. The students also use technology to help them design, type, and organize their ideas. The iPad cords will ensure the technology stays charged and ready for the students.

It is so important to support the arts in classrooms.

As a teacher, I know how much students love to create art, and having art supplies in my first-grade classroom would be a great learning experience. I have seen students really thrive by creating art work.
