My Students

Your assignment- Research report complete with color photos and a presentation to the class. You've put a great deal of time, energy, and artistic effort into your project. Almost finished and ready to print... oh wait, you cannot print because we don't have a printer.

My students are eager to learn and love using technology in their research.

As fourth graders, they have tons of questions about the world and are getting pretty resourceful in finding their answers. They really enjoy searching the Internet to find credible sources of information. Our school is in a rural area with very limited educational resources. We have only one black and white printer in our classroom. The ink is very expensive and generally, it is reserved for printing report cards.

My Project

With a new color printer, paper and toner, my students will be able to print their research papers and the beautiful photos they've found to go along with them. My students love to search the Internet to find out all sorts of information. A color printer will help my students create beautiful reports filled with vibrant images.

Having a color printer will change my student's lives for the better by making their reports and projects come to life.

They will be able to print something tangible to share with others. Many of these reports and color projects will be saved by parents as special memories from 4th Grade.
