Pretty Please Help Us Purchase A Printer
My students need supplemental resources in addition to the reading and math textbooks provided by the county. These resources often must be printed from a digital file. They need a printer and ink.
Do you remember a time in school that you were handed a worksheet that looked as if it was created at least 20 years ago? Our expectations for what students should be learning are evolving and our materials for teaching these objectives must keep up. Students need high-quality and engaging materials
I have a classroom of 18 kindergarteners (5-6 year olds).
Our school is located in a small town in Tennessee. My students thrive when they have materials that are relevant to them and keep their attention. They enjoy hands-on math experiences, science experiments, and opportunities for authentic writing.
Often I find that the best resources to reach my students are not boring worksheets that have been in my filing cabinet for years and years. Most often they are found online via a search on Pinterest or through reading teacher blogs. These resources are created by teachers and are available for purchase at a website- www.teacherspayteachers.com. I spend hundreds of dollars a year on these resources because they are engaging for the students, often include hands-on games and activities, and usually integrate several subject areas into a particular thematic "unit." I am requesting a new printer for my classroom so that I can print these high-quality and engaging resources for my students. At the rate that I print now, I go through many ink cartridges each year and I have a printer that is very inefficient. After reading reviews, I selected this particular printer because it requires less expensive refill cartridges and is supposed to be a high quality printer.
It would be incredible to have a reliable printer that can be refilled with affordable ink cartridges.
This printer would mean that I would be able to provide my students with resources that keep their attention.
