Mrs. Shirley from Depue IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Printing Colorful Games

My students need a new printer and ink for my classroom so I can print colored activities and games. We only have one colored printer in the district to share amongst all the staff and office.

My Students

I teach ESL in a small PreK-12 school. I have small groups all day long grades Kindergarten through 5th grade. Our school is low income and many of my students do not have the resources at home needed for success. They look forward to the new and exciting resources at school that their parents can't afford to provide them with.

Every day my small groups come to me eager to learn something new.

I love to see their faces when they come in seeing a new game or activity on the table. Help me have the resources to keep creating new activities.

My Project

We play a lot of games and do lots of different activities. A printer would be very helpful when creating these activities and games. My students appreciate the colored games and activities that I create as they don't have many games to play at home.

The problem is that there is only one color printer in the district for all students, staff and office staff to use.

This printer and ink would allow me to print the games and activities for my students in my own classroom and not be interrupted by other people printing.

I do not have a curriculum this year so all of my activities are created on my own. I do a lot of printing to create games and activities for students to use and learn from.
