I have twenty-nine especially awesome third graders. My students are so excited about being in such an important grade level. We live in the high poverty area in a small border town and most students qualify for free or reduce lunch.
My classroom is blessed to have a great variety of students.
Among my awesome students, I have some English Language Learners who have been working above and beyond to be proficient in English. I also have some special education and gifted/exceptional students who offer my classroom excitement and novelty each day.
A printer in the classroom is a necessity. Currently our school printer is out of order. In a good day when the printer does work, teachers are limited to the amount of copies we can make. Our school does not purchase or currently have textbooks or workbooks for the students. Teachers are forced to print work materials for their students.
This requested HP LaserJet Pro printer and toner cartridges can make a difference to my students by providing them with printed materials that they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.
My students are currently working on opinion pieces. During the last two quarters, they worked on informational/research and narrative writing. They are learning that authors take their task and perfect their work until it is finally print ready. In a world of technology tablets and screens, being able to see their materials in hard copy excites students. With the HP printer, they'll publish their works as printed masterpieces.
