Getting Inked!

My students need printer ink to be able to experience things that they may never have seen or heard of.

My Students

Imagine being placed in a completely different country where everything is different from the language, to the food, to the clothing. This is what the students in my classroom are facing right now. My classroom is full of diversity in languages, cultures, and knowledge levels.

My students are English Language Learners from all around the world!

Most of them have just arrived to America and are still getting used to the differences around them. My students are the kindest children with the warmest hearts that you will ever meet. They embrace their new surroundings quickly while still maintaining who they are and where they come from. My school is FANTASTIC! We are located in the heart of a very low poverty area, but we don't see this as a challenge. My school does amazing things for this community. We help kids flourish and reach their full potential through passion and commitment. We are a nationally ranked A+ school of excellence and have maintained an "A" rating for multiple years. We all work together as a campus and community to help students that are "at risk."

My Project

Currently, I provide any necessary materials that students need to be successful in school. With them just arriving to an entirely new culture the last thing I want them to worry about is school supplies. I have been using colored pictures to complete our interactive notebooks to help provide real-life examples to my students. Most of the students don't know specific foods, places, people, animals etc. Therefore, the use of these photographs in their notebooks help build not only their knowledge, but it helps them build their vocabulary and learn English more quickly. I would love to continue to use this resource to help strengthen their skills. If I could get this project fulfilled, then I would be able to continue to provide these examples to my students with enough ink for our classroom printer. This will help contribute to their language acquisition and continue to help them manipulate the English language to learn it quickly and proficiently.

I want to help my wonderful students flourish as learners and become proficient; however, without this funding I am not entirely sure how I can still provide the photos for students to truly understand what we are talking about.

It is very hard to provide a black and white photo of something if there is no background knowledge.
