  • My Class Needs creative art materials to communicate thinking in playful inquiry

    Launched May 25th, 2017 Project Deadline December 31st, 2017
    Classroom Size 20 Students School Size 372 Students

    My Students

    My students are a group of curious and playful K/1 children. Many of my learners come from wonderfully diverse, and often complex, backgrounds with high levels of English Language Learners and low socio-economic status. My students love to build with different materials and create with art mediums. With the variety of interests it is essential to ensure that all children enter into a learning opportunity and share their own thinking in a playful, creative, and developmentally appropriate way.

    How will this project impact them?

    Firstly, the students will be building, creating, and exploring with the different materials and art mediums to develop their creative thinking, creative expression, identity, and understanding of materials/mediums. Secondly, the children will then be using the different materials in connection with our curriculum and their interests. As students communicate their wonders and experiences, we will be using the materials to communicate their theories, their new learning, and their investigations. The impact on students is both immediate and long lasting. As children communicate through creative thinking in a way that is best suited to themselves they are engaged in joyful and purposeful daily learning. Lastly, this is directly related to the curriculum Core Competencies (communication, thinking, and personal/social competencies) which are now at the forefront of every K-12 program.
