Colors of Summer!

My students need ink for our color printer.

My Students

How do you learn to read and write in English and Spanish? You need lots of materials to read with pictures and labels with pictures to put all over your classroom. We are in need of ink to replenish our color printer.

We are a title 1 school with about 90% of our students coming from low income and English Language Learning households.

We are a full day Pre-K program, one of the last full day Pre-Kindergarten's in the state. We have 7 Pre-K classes on our campus of over 700 students. We are a new school, built to relieve overcrowding in our neighborhood.

My Project

We do not have extra funds for color printers, so if we use our teachers personal printer, she buys the ink. We are Pre-K, so many of our special activities involve photographs of ourselves, like name recognition cards, helper charts, and center management boards to name a few. We also have letter walls in both English and Spanish. Each letter of the alphabet will have pictures of 5-7 objects that start with that letter. We need to see them in color to know if the word is English or Spanish.

How do you learn to read color words, if every word is written in black?

You need to see the actual color represented with a picture. We have posters and charts all over our room to help with how to play here and how to clean up, we need to see those instructions/pictures in color to make it make more sense to a 4 year old. You can give us that confidence by helping us see in color.
