Help me give my students an Epson Eco-Tank Printer that will allow us to print an abundance of books, activities and resources to use daily, as well as give students the opportunity to print their own work.
In our 3rd grade Integrated Co-taught Literacy classroom, we have 2 classes of 3rd grade students eager to learn. This classroom setting integrates students with disabilities into a general education classroom, with two teachers to provide students with the instructional they need. Our diverse learners have a wide range of needs. Many of our students face learning challenges due to a lack of resources at home. Despite these challenges, our students come in enthusiastic and ready to work hard each day.
Our goal is for all students to become literate, caring, responsible citizens and life-long learners in preparation for college and careers.
This year we are focusing on promoting growth mindset, as well as getting students engaged in their learning by facilitating meaningful peer-led discussions and using culturally relevant materials and resources. Our students are learning how to collaborate with peers through discussions, while supporting one another as they persevere through challenges.
Having a printer in our literacy focused classroom will be beneficial in so many ways. With such a diverse group of learners, we are always looking for new resources and different ways to keep our students engaged in their learning. Having a printer in the classroom will allow us to print off a variety of different activities that students can use in centers and to build the skills necessary to reach their goals. Resources include materials such as word work, task cards, discussion stems, individual/table anchor charts, and a wide-range of leveled books and/or articles to add to our classroom library.
Currently, our students have limited access in the school building to printers they can use to print their own work.
With a printer in our classroom, students can print out things such as their writing pieces. This will allow them to take pride in the process and effort they put into developing published writing pieces, as well as become more familiar with technology applications, such as Microsoft Word.
