    My Students

    Fraser Mustard Early Learning Academy is a public school of 650 Kindergarten children. That is 24 classes of 3 to 6 year olds! As the Visual Arts Teacher, I am fortunate to work with all of them. Our school is located in a densely populated, high needs community made up mainly of young families who are new to Canada. More than 35 languages are spoken in our school, with children arriving throughout the school year. What they have in common is their love of school and an eagerness to learn.

    How will this project impact them?

    Storytelling is am important way for young children to develop their imaginations and share their experiences of the world around them. The majority of our children are English Language Learners. They are encouraged to communicate in their home languages, in English and using their many "other languages." They may choose to develop a way of communicating through sculpture, for example, by combining loose parts. We currently have a studio/art gallery as a space for our arts programming. I would like to create a space within our gallery that will help foster a culture of storytelling that not only focuses on the oral tradition, but also honours the children's need to express themselves using all of their senses. I am hoping to source a range of open-ended loose parts and sensory materials from Wintergreen that will help us with this new project.

    * Fulfillment Materials: This covers the physical costs of processing teacher and student thank-you letters and pictures, including printing, postage, labels, envelopes, cover sheets, etc.

    *** Optional Donation: An optional donation to support MyClassNeeds which is calculated at 15% of the project’s price tag. The optional contribution supports the work we do to engage teachers, build awareness, and to generally run MyClassNeeds. To do that we need a world- class website supported by strong business systems and processes that improve over time.
