My students need a printer to be able to have choices in their learning by printing out practice material that is tailored to them and complete projects that include pictures and models they choose to print.
My students are dedicated and focused. Their goals are to become global Leaders; I teach at a low-income/Title I school district, and my students face several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Their socioeconomic disadvantage hinders them from competing with others. They are limited on life experiences outside of their neighborhood. In addition, many of my students lost their homes and items, due to Hurricane Harvey, but, they are still excited about learning. They are so hard working and dedicated to being successful.
One of the main parts of teaching is to provide differentiation for all of my students. One of the best ways to differentiate is by allowing choice. We are in need of a printer in our classroom so students will have the opportunity to go on the computer and browse and find their own practice for the objective we are learning about in class. We need the printer so they can print out the page or pages they need to do practice and master the objectives in math class.
My students also do various projects which require research on the computer.
Two main projects they do are for our Math Academic Extravaganza and their STEAM project. It is very difficult for them to always copy down information they need for their projects. We have to save their pictures, diagrams, examples, models that they need to a drive and hope the office will help us out and print them.
By donating to our project, you are helping fifth graders become more independent and more responsible for their own learning. They no longer just open a textbook and turn to the page the teacher tells them. They will be able to choose the page/ practice they need and print it out themselves. We thank you in advance for your donations.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
