  • My Class Needs art supplies to develop language and fine motor skills

    Launched August 1st, 2017 Project Deadline December 31st, 2017
    Classroom Size 20 Students School Size 513 Students

    My Students

    I will be teaching 20 kindergarten students with mixed backgrounds and abilities. Like most 5 and 6 year olds, kindergarteners come to school energetic and naturally inquisitive. They learn through hands on experiences and communicating about these activities. Through the year they will be working on early language and communication skills as well as developing fine and gross motor.

    How will this project impact them?

    This year, I will use art to improve many early learning skills of my primary students. I will ensure students are ready for the challenging task of writing by improving their fine motor skills through the use of paint, chalk, beads and oil pastels more frequently than I ever have before. I plan to develop vocabulary and oral language while creating model figures that encourage story telling. I also believe creating beautiful art improves confidence and stamina to focus on tasks, which are areas many students, who are prone to video game use, struggle with. The creative process also helps build dendrites in their brain which improves their ability to acquire knowledge in other subject areas. If my class should receive this grant it will allow me to expose them to art supplies and techniques that they would not normally have available to them and overall improve their academic learning.
