My Students

I have a classroom of adorable 4-year-olds eager and curious about the world around them. The children are involved in many activities throughout the day. For example, the children engage with their peers in choice time center activities that involve many opportunities for hands-on learning, growing, and socializing. I would like the opportunity to capture the moments when my students are happily learning skills, that they will take with them to future grades, all while having fun playing. In order to do this, I will need colored ink for my printer. By having the colored ink for my printer, I will be able to print out many pictures of my students. These pictures will be placed in a portfolio for each child’s parent, at the end of the school year, as a keepsake. This will serve as a memory for both the child and their parents.

Please help me make this dream a reality by donating to my project.

Thank you!

My Project

I am asking for colored ink for my printer. This will make a difference in my students learning and improve their school lives. Young children love to see themselves in pictures. Their parents love to see their children in pictures as well. If you purchase this colored ink for my printer, for me, it will enable me to print out pictures of my students, engaged in learning, play, socialization, and much much more. Seeing themselves in photographs will give my students a sense of pride, self-esteem, and encouragement to keep working hard, playing, and learning. I would appreciate it if you would fund my project. My little learners would appreciate it too.
