My Students

My Kindergarten students are only 22 of the almost 700 students that come to school ready to learn each day. Our school services Pre-K through 4th grade. Many students are from low-income households and participate in the free and reduced-price lunch program.

My students need a color printer to help bring color and creativity to their learning environment!

My Kindergarten classroom includes special education; therefore, there are many visual displays that can be utilized for these students to increase their learning. Visual learning is among the very best methods for teaching students of all ages how to think and learn. A color printer would allow us to print images to help students gain a deeper understanding for new material.

My Project

Being a new teacher, I haven't acquired many colorful learning materials. Having access to a color printer will enhance the learning in my inclusion classroom.

When materials are printed in black and white, most of the important details are lost, interfering with the student's comprehension and learning.

As a kindergarten teacher, I am one of the first influences on a child's vocabulary development. This vocabulary development is the foundation for many years of creative writing and expression. Having colorful visuals will aid in the comprehension process of these terms. Many of my students aren't exposed to various environments besides their home and school.
