My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life and ready to learn. I work hard to ensure my students have a fun and safe learning environment. I want my students to feel as if our classroom is a second home to them and they can be comfortable. I want my students to know that I believe in them but most importantly, to believe in themselves.

Each of my students bring a different vibe and creative way of learning to our classroom.

Many of my students are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire them.

My Project

I would like to purchase a color printer to bring our 5th grade projects to life but specifically for my students with IEPs (Individual Education Plan) and disabilities. I have students that have been diagnosed with disabilities such as speech and language and learning disabilities. These students in my class have very different learning style and most of these students benefit from material presented visually. As students learn and think visually, they have the opportunity to see things in a graphical sense as they learn new ways to work and present their information. Research in both educational theory and cognitive psychology tells us that visual learning is among the very best methods for teaching students of all ages how to think and learn. A new color printer would allow us to print projects, highlight vocabulary words, and color code key ideas to help us gain a deeper understanding of new material.

Being in 5th grade our students get the great experience of using technology with Chromebooks and iPads.

The students get to use a variety of programs and apps including Google Slides and Google Drawings. By using all of these programs and apps, they are able to create impressive and inspiring projects. I will be able to display these projects by having a color printer. By being able to print these projects, my students will be ecstatic to see their hard work on the wall, while admiring their classmates work as well. This will motivate them to put even more effort into the next project that we create. This will awaken their imagination and get our creative juices flowing.

A color printer would allow children to become facilitators in their own learning by allowing them to create projects and graphics that will increase their own understanding of the topic.
