Brightening Up Our Classroom and Hallway!

My students need books to have read to them about their first year. My students need colored ink so materials look kid friendly. My students need a colorful classroom.

My Students

When students walk into my room, I want them to feel welcome and excited. I want my classroom to be bright and colorful.

Majority of my students are low income and suffer from poverty.

I want their classroom to feel welcoming and kid-friendly. There's nothing worse than walking into a dark and dreary classroom. With this order, I hope to spruce up my classroom a bit with the colored ink, laminator to make things last longer, and colorful decorations and borders.

My Project

The materials being purchased will help spruce up my classroom. My personal laminator recently stopped working, so I need a new one to laminate materials to make them more durable. The colored ink will allow me to print items and have them more colorful. The decorations will be used to help brighten up my classroom, as well as the hallways. My students love colorful and "pretty" things.

My students see and deal with issues that most children their age do not.

I want them to feel welcome and happy when they enter our classroom. I can do this by simply sprucing up my classroom and making it more colorful and decorated.
