Hooray! This project is fully funded
As a teacher in a high-poverty, Title 1 school, my students face many challenges inside and outside of the classroom. Despite these challenges, they all come to school every day excited to learn.
Almost all of my students are English Language Learners.
Aside from the rigorous academic work the students are required to do on a daily basis, they are also in the process of learning a new language. Many of the students' parents also speak very limited English and rely on their children for translation. These students have such a great responsibility that most fifth graders wouldn't have.
Every day students are writing; whether it be personal narratives, informational reports, or a story straight from their vivid imaginations. They love to include pictures and do research on the classroom laptops. After they type their reports, students want to print their paper to be able to share them with their classmates.
Having ink will bring their hard work to life.
Sharing your report with your class with pictures of the actual animal you researched or the characters you want to include in your fiction story is such a better experience than a black and white paper. Color adds life!
With many of my students being English Language Learners, differentiating lessons with different colors and images is crucial for their understanding of the content. The possibilities of what we can do in the classroom with ink is endless!
