My Students

Skills for Learning and Life is very much a group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while many others are learning to imitate sounds or hold a crayon. My group loves to play outside, play with blocks and puzzles, and dance to music. They are amazing when it comes to technology, and as children in a world of high-tech, they need to be prepared to use a variety of tools to succeed in society and life.

My Project

The color printer we use is sometimes down and we also share it with the rest of the school. With a special needs class, and an in-class printer, we will have immediate access to confidential material and easily read worksheets.

The printer I have selected will help my students by giving them access to clear, color pictures that will help them understand and compare real world settings.

With a high-capacity printer, I can print many color booklets and worksheets we use on a daily basis!

It would be so helpful to us to be able to use a printer in our classroom!
