Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are a spirited and imaginative bunch. They have endured challenges and faced difficult circumstances, but still light up the room when they walk in. They are eager to demonstrate their grit and thrive when given problems in their content areas that connect to their lived experiences.
They are a group that captures the heart of Oakland in their creativity and willingness to chase after their dreams.
With their unique voices they are learning change the world around them for the better.
Having access to an all-in-one color printer will enable my students to have copies of activity sheets that are vibrant and classroom decorations that pop to create a physical space that is are creative as they are. My goal is to make a storybook themed classroom, where different areas of the room feature a character like Pete The Cat or place like Where The Wild Things Are to establish a sense of excitement for reading. When my students need visual representations of the animals or plants we study, I want to provide them with color copies. Printing in color will allow me to scaffold their learning of place value as they see the numbers in the tens and ones place in bright colors.
A classroom printer would become my students beacon of color for their projects.
The glimmer I see in my students eyes when they see their materials in color in tremendous. Interesting color combinations make things more engaging for them. An all-in-one color printer could also benefit their peers in other classrooms.
