Mrs. D. from Worcester MA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready, Set, Print!

My students need access to a printer and inks in order to publish and encourage their passion to write.

My Students

My students are excited to enter the classroom, ready for adventure! The population I work with struggle academically, and my room is a space for them to work at their own level with peers in a small group. They feel confident and supported.

The students I serve are from the inner city and are behind their peers, heading to middle school.

My main goal is to support them as they progress and grow. As with anything, feeding, and providing light and space, all things grow. I plan to feed them the knowledge that they are missing, giving them the space and encouragement to try these new skills.

As I settle into my role, it has become challenging with only one computer in my classroom and no printer to set these aspiring authors up with success. They have been excited in our learning adventure together, and I am looking to build on our momentum. The students will not only benefit from their published pieces, but the self esteem boost, and the ability of myself to print secure documents to a printer that is accessible to only my classroom will give them more dignity.

My Project

This printer with ink and paper will give my students the opportunity to take ownership in their writing. They will be encouraged to make it their own. Using different, colored paper, fonts, and colored text help kids explore their own writing and enjoy reading other's writing in class.

As standardized testing becomes more computer based, my students need to work on their keyboarding skills.

This is an authentic and productive way to complete that goal as well. My students need extra encouragement since they feel anxious that they are already behind their peers. Any way to make writing, a daunting task for even some adults, seem more inclusive and exciting will help them explore more complex and rich vocabulary, try out styles we have practiced in school, and give them an opportunity to publish and be proud of their pieces.
