My students love center time and I enjoy coming up with new ways to get them excited about learning. I like to use games and manipulatives. They make abstract learning more concrete. I want to be able to print things in color to create more exciting centers.
This year I have a group of students who love to learn!
They love to be challenged and accomplish their goals. When given a task they are engaged and it is important to them to finish the task. They always go above and beyond and are eager to please! They have made this year a blast for me! I am always excited to find new ways to challenge and engage them!
I will use the color printer to print out stuff to create my own educational games and puzzles. I buy things off the Teachers Pay Teachers website or create my own, print them out, and then cut and laminate them. Then the students use them during center time. This is actually more versatile and cheaper than going to an educational store and purchasing games and puzzles that are already made.
Having a color printer will allow me to create more exciting and engaging centers.
If the students are engaged then they are more likely to retain the information. Sure, I can print the centers without color but that's no fun!
