Color Printing Dreams!

Help me give my students a color printer!! They often create amazing projects and are excited to print them, printing them in color would be so much better. The projects would have the pop we need.

My Students

My classroom is alway full of exciting, creative and active learners! As an ELA teacher, I'm always excited to read and hear the great stories my students tell. They enjoy the fun games I create using traditional games and turning them into reading language arts games!

Writing is an integral part of learning and growing.

Student writing is critical to the education process. I'm so excited to see how much our students grow through writing. Students being able to tell their own stories in their own words is priceless! My students tell stories about their lives, their struggles, and their accomplishments, I'm so very proud of them!

My Project

My students often create amazing writing projects using Pages, Osmo Masterpiece, PowerPoint, and photos to enhance their writing, but we have no way of printing them in color. My students enjoy writing and creating original projects, they really are growing as amazing writers!

A color printer would really add to our projects in our classroom!

It would help to better explain the feelings in the writing the students create. Printing in color engage students, draws their attention and piques their interest. Color is beneficial to all learners, it engages and inspires them! Color facilitates the creative and critical thinking that's so important for original ideas. Color can be a tremendous asset to all learners.
