Mrs. Castrejon from Lynwood CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ink for First Graders!

My students need ink to be able to print their findings from STEM investigations along with their stories (from another project) from their GoogleDocs! I will also be able to provide colorful graphics to enhance discussions.

My Students

I have 25 enthusiastic learners that love learning! We are a Title I school in a low socioeconomic neighborhood with limited resources. 100% of our students receive free lunches. The majority of my students are English Language Learners with a lot of curiosity and great ideas. They come from hard-working families that have at least two jobs. My students need the right resources and tools to help them master the academic standards in all areas. Many of my students lack resources to complete projects at home, such as internet, computers and printers. All children deserve equal access to technology!

My Project

My students recently acquired Chromebooks through another project to tell their stories. They have vigorously transferred their written stories onto GoogleDocs, however we need colored ink to print their graphics along with their writing. They will also need color ink to print their images as we capture science in motion and engage in STEM activities throughout the year. Many of my students lack resources to complete projects at home, such as internet, computers and printers.

Help my students' observations become tangible by helping us with our ink project.

As we become engaged in discussions about our scientific findings. They will have the opportunity for creativity and instant retrieval of bringing their work to life in a matter of seconds.
