Colors Speak Louder Than Words

Help me give my students a color printer and ink we can use in the classroom.

My Students

My Kindergarten class consists of 21 students who come in each morning eager to learn and do their absolute best.

I teach in a Title I school, located in a city booming with diversity, and students come from a wide range of backgrounds, speak a variety of languages, and have huge imaginations!

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method in which they learn best varies greatly. I make it my goal to incorporate a variety of learning strategies and opportunities to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are. This bunch is truly an incredible group, and I love watching them beam with excitement and confidence when they are successful.

My Project

I love finding new games and centers that perfectly align with a child's needs and interests. I print picture cards for sound sorts, math games, and real life science pictures for exploring. With this new color printer, I will be able to print pictures, games, and centers to reach each and every one of my students. I would also use the printer to print certificates and awards to motivate and congratulate each of their individual successes.

A printer would surely play a part in livening the learning in our classroom.

Help us make our world a little more colorful with a classroom printer!
