My students need a printer because we don't have books at school and my students really enjoying reading. Having a color copier will give me access to making copies of their favorite old time favorites.
I teach a self-contained classroom in the Bronx. My students are extremely special and they have multiple special needs. My class is a Kindergarten, First and Second grade class with students that are Autistic and Emotionally Disturbed. I have students from many different backgrounds and learning styles. My students have extreme behaviors such as hitting, throwing chairs, knocking over tables, and screaming. They have many special needs that aren't addressed in the regular education classroom. They are lovable, friendly, inquisitive and hard-working children that need a high-level of engagement to learn at their best! My school is a new school so there is no funding to buy extras items that we may need. The money we have is being spent on buying furniture and books.
Having a color printer in the room will make such a difference. I work in a small school with a tiny budget. Our photo copy machine is never working. My Special Education students enjoy reading in the classroom and at home. Our school does not have a library where students can take out books.
Having a color printer in the classroom will allow me to make copies of amazing books.
This way my students will be able to make their own little libraries, and they can call these books their own.
Please will you help us? It would put a smile on 13 students and on mine.
