Mrs. Olvera from Jacksonville FL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Colorful Center Creations!

My students need an HP color printer with insta ink for our class room use. We make engaging centers to meet the needs of each learner. We laminate them and use them from year to year.

My Students

As an inclusion teacher in a title one school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. As an educator I am determined to make our learning environment engaging for ALL learners. Every child has the ability to learn when given the proper accommodations and seating to meet their individual needs.

From the minute they walk in my classroom, I focus on a student's potential growth academically throughout the school year.

In my classroom we ask questions. We talk and encourage each other to try again when we make mistakes. Mistakes are good, because learning is our goal, not perfection. I may not be able to control home lives, and factors outside of school. However I can try to create a positive learning environment. I hope to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path to success and self confidence. I have a class of learners that are a perfect blend of general education learners, as well as learners with exceptionalities. My students love teacher lead small groups. They like to move, and reading in a small group can be challenging without flexible seating. These Hokki stools allow movement without distraction.

My Project

As an Title One inclusion teacher, I differentiate instruction for each student in my class. Each student will benefit from this color printer as they will be able to look at illustrations and pictures that questions reference in color. The questions asked often reference photographs, graphs, and maps in text. Students will be able to have stronger answers as they will be able to describe what they are seeing in color.

I make centers that reinforce each lesson we do.

These math and reading centers are printed on card stock and laminated and bound to be used from year to year. We have a school partner who has been able to assist us in printing however they are unable to continue.

They have gone over and above in their generosity! We would love to continue to make centers in colorful ink to meet the needs of all the learners in our class, using the HP Printer!
