I have some eager to learn, energetic students. We are located in low income, suburban community. Many of them have recently moved from the inner city. Our school is ninety-eight percent African American, with the majority coming from single parent homes. We have approximately three hundred and fifty students in our school from grades kindergarten through sixth grade. Most of our students qualify for free lunch and many come with limited school supplies. We have a great deal of students reading below grade level and struggling with their math skills. I work extremely hard to make each of them feel important and successful.
My students generally do not have access to computers or printers at home. This makes it more difficult for them to create projects that meet the expectations of the classroom at the highest quality. They would enjoy printing graphics that make their reports and projects come alive, but we need ink cartridges. Color adds so much more to a project and students really enjoy unleashing their creativity through print media. Graphs are easier to read with data standing out more clearly. Biographies come to life. Book reports are more interesting. Printing in color just makes learning more fun and gets students more engaged and excited about assignments.
