Mrs. Silman from Indianapolis IN is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Colorful and Durable Resources

My students need documents to be printed in color to keep them stimulated to work. The color ink cartridges would provide the students with catchy and engaging posters and stations! I am also requesting a laminator and pouches.

My Students

Our students are part of a diverse community where students are given the opportunity to explore and persevere. Our students come from mostly low to average income families. My students require Special Ed services as a result of a Specific Learning Disability (reading fluency, reading comp, math concepts and applications, math calc, written exp, spelling, or oral comp), an Other Health Impairment (Cerebral Palsy, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder-IA or HA, or seizures), being on the Autism Spectrum, or a Physical Impairment. Regardless of their disability, or impairment, they are challenged by not having the same access to the general ed curriculum just as all of their peers.

My school is a diverse community that believes that our students can be successful.

Our students are taught to be open-minded and balanced in all areas of their lives. They are taught to be communicators, thinkers, inquirers, risk-takers, knowledgeable, and reflective.

My Project

The ink and laminating materials provided as a result of your donations will allow me to keep making exciting, reusable, and colorful posters and stations which will give my students a chance to learn in fun ways. Students truly love to be able to work with others to accomplish assigned tasks. Amazing things can happen in a productive and engaging class!

Your donation will allow my students to have a great experience learning in fun and innovative ways.

Being able to create posters and stations will keep my students interacting with the content and each other in a positive way.
