I teach general education in a high-need community. My students are first graders that come from single parent families.

I encourage my students to share their stories and creativity with the world. I encourage them to use writing as their way to express their feelings, thoughts, and ideas. Writing is a way to bring their fantasies to life. Taking each writing piece through the Writing Process allows the students to see how their ideas are crafted and shaped during each step of the process. As with any major accomplishment, the students are excited when they approach the end of the Writing Process and transition into the Publishing phase. After all, this brings them one step closer to taking their seat in the “Author’s Chair.” The students clearly exhibit a passion for writing. However, recently they have been expressing more interest in using the computer and asking if they can type and print their final draft. The only problem is that we do not have a printer for the computer.

A Printer will allow the students to type their final draft and have them printed from the desktop. Being able to print their stories and creative writing pieces would give the students a sense of pride in seeing their finished draft and also allow them to feel like professional authors and illustrators like those of the children books that we read daily during “Story Time.”

Your help will give students the opportunity to see their work published in a format other than their own handwriting. Furthermore, typing and printing will also allow the students to practice a skill that will assist them later in life when they go to college and join the workforce.
