Every year, I get about 25 newly-arrived immigrant students from Vietnam. These students come from homes where the parents are determined to do the best they can to help their child be successful. Unfortunately, my students do not always have access to quality learning resources.
As a teacher in a high-poverty district, I believe my students deserve equal access to learning materials that will allow them to thrive.
In particular, as English Language Learners, my students need resources that will allow them to fully develop language and learning in an engaging and meaningful way.
Every day, my students need access to printed materials that allow them to effectively engage in new learning and reinforce prior knowledge. As a teacher, I want my materials to be as visually appealing as possible to increase student engagement. Quite often, however, due to the high cost of paper and color ink, I am not able to print what I need to. I recently learned of a special printing program called Instant Ink that will allow me to print a very high number of pages. However, I cannot participate in this program without the requisite printer.
Getting this printer will allow me to print all the color materials I need for my class without ever having to worry about the cost.
My students will be able to play more rhyming and letter and sound games during their literacy center time. During math time, they will be able to have more colorful games that they can play in pairs or independently. Last but not least, I will be able to use more visually appealing and effective materials to help provide visual images for the children which will make the learning "stick" more!
