My Students

My students are in kindergarten and first grade.

They have disabilities including but not limited to Autism, specific learning disabilities in both auditory and visual processing delays, developmental delays and speech and language impairments.

Our school is located in a rough area of South Los Angeles were the majority of students come from very low income households. They are a great bunch of inquisitive, fun, and diverse learners who need extra support and resources to aide and enrich their learning.

My Project

In order to enhance my students' academic and social abilities, my classroom needs many tools. One of the many areas in which my students need improvement is in language. The majority of my students are visual learners, therefore I am asking for a color printer to print pictures in color which will make their learning more realistic and help develop their language skills and vocabulary. Having students who are 4 to 6 years old speaking like and having the vocabulary of a Pre-Kindergarten student, I know that vocabulary and language will be one of areas in which we will work hard throughout this year. Therefore the color printer that I am requesting will help me make vocabulary cards and print color pictures when bringing in the real thing is not an option.

Bringing color to our world will help develop vocabulary, language and enhance my students learning through colorful, realistic looking pictures.

Thanks for reading our proposal. I hope you will help in bringing color into our room and making our world a little brighter.
