My students need a digital camera, an HP printer, and ink to create photo scrapbooks and preserve their favorite first grade memories.
"A picture is worth a thousand words." - Chinese proverb Have you ever found a long forgotten school yearbook or photo album? Wasn't it wonderful to look back and remember that special school year? I want to help my little learners create scrapbooks to preserve their first grade memories.
I teach first grade in a small school district with a big heart.
We are a community of middle-income families hit hard by the current CA budget crisis. Our district has had to make serious cutbacks and unfortunately does not have the extra money for creative projects like scrapbooks. My students are excited about learning and everyday they are also discovering new things about themselves through math, science, social studies, reading, and art. Our parents volunteer when they can, but most have been forced to work more and volunteer less due to the budget crisis. This has been quite an adjustment for both parents and students, and I think a scrapbook would make the perfect memento of this year.
I am requesting a digital camera, an HP printer, and ink in order to create a photo scrapbook for each one of my students. Parents who are not able to experience these special moments in person will appreciate being able to look through the scrapbook. Pictures taken with the camera will be used in a slide show for Back to School Night as well as Open House to show parents what happens in our classroom. This will in turn build a better connection between home and school. The equipment donated through this project will also help other activities come alive. For example, my students will become excited about writing if they are able to take and print color pictures and then create stories about them. With the printer, I'll be able to scan documents, allowing me to preserve copies of student work.
The best part of this project is that it will not only benefit my class this year, but for my students in the future, too!
The equipment purchased with your generous donation will allow me to keep the scrapbook project a first grade tradition for many years to come! Thank you so much for your support. Our busy bees really appreciate your consideration.
