Mrs. Giraffe from Mesa AZ is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a colored printer so that I can differentiate my lessons for my special education students to help them be success learners
The school I am at is a Title-One school where the majority of the students are living in poverty. My classroom in particular consists of students who need more support in not only academics but social-emotional learning as well.
These students are either behind academically because they are dual-language-learners or have some form of a learning disability.
They come to my classroom so that they can have extra support in the areas they struggle in. What these kids do not lack is humor, compassion, and empathy.
2-5 grade students are learning how to be a good student and a successful adult from ground zero. Every minute of their day is a chance to change their academic future to help them achieve their goals and exit the cycle of poverty. Students in this age range are more successful in a learning environment that provides not only academic but sensory supports.
My students come from a low income area where access to color printers is low to near impossible. Currently I have been printing at local stores like Staples, UPS, or Office Depot because I believe that adding colors to my student's learning materials is a necessity. Studies have shown that giving students notes that are color coded activate different parts of their brain to increase retention. Color coordination is also a great way to create connections between fraction sizes, sight words, and literary ideas. I believe that with a color printer I can take my student's education to the next level of success!
