Desperately Seeking Printer Ink

My students need ink for our classroom printer so they can print and showcase their excellent work and I can print out needed resources for them.

My Students

I teach third grade at an elementary school that has students from pre-Kindergarten to sixth grade. We are a Title I school that serves both breakfast and lunch and all of my students qualify for free or reduced meal plans. I teach 25 students, many of them English Language Learners. Every single day is an adventure. One of the truly nice things about my school is that it really is a neighborhood school. It is relatively small compared to other schools in the district, and most of the students that attend have many other family members here.

My students are wonderfully motivated and are very eager to learn despite not always having all the supplies that they need.

My students work hard from the moment we arrive until the bell rings and it is time to go home. The students thrive on hands-on learning in our STEM units and are fascinated by technology. My students are as capable as all other students in the nation. I just want to give them all the opportunities that other students have.

My Project

My class needs printer ink for our printer, so that I will be able to print out reading books and other supplementary materials for my students to learn with. The ink will provide my students with access to various reading materials, guided reading texts as well as research documents. I will be able to print out books for groups of students. As a teacher, my goal is to expose my students to different types of genres on different reading levels.

Having printer ink will allow students to have their own copies of reading materials as well as printing out their writing.

My students all work very hard on their writing and it would be wonderful if they would be able to print out a polished copied that they can be proud of and not have to worry about running out of supplies before the school year is over. I would really appreciate any support for my students.
