Learning in Color
My students need black and tri-color ink to print research articles and projects.
My students live in a very rural area in South Carolina. More than eighty percent of students qualify for free and reduced lunch. Many come from homes without air conditioning and depend on the school bus to get them to from home to school because their family doesn't own a vehicle. Books, digital devices, and other educational materials are considered luxuries to many of these students.
No matter what challenges they may be facing at home, my students come to school ready to learn and gain new experiences!
They love working on STEM activities, sharing facts from nonfiction books, and keeping up with the latest fiction series. They are well versed in technology and enjoy learning new apps and programs to show off their learning.
Elementary students are visual and concrete learners. While, my students enjoy using digital resources, there are often times when they need to print.
These ink cartridges will allow students to print any articles or information they may need to take with them.
Cell phones, internet, and digital devices are ubiquitous, but printing capability is not always accessible for students. If would be a wonderful resource to provide free printing in the media center for all students.
Additionally, students frequently use library class time to create projects or digital presentations that need to be printed. Few areas in our school have color ink, so this would be another valuable resource for them to have in the media center.
