My Students

It's so frustrating to run out of ink and not be able to print pictures of students, copies for lessons, and student work. Having this project funded would make running out an impossibility for quite a while!

My students are a wonderful bunch of 5 and 6 year olds in a kindergarten classroom in Texas.

We are at a very high poverty school, where many students are living multiple families in a house and most receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch. We are only three weeks into the school year and I already have students telling me they love school and wish they could stay longer each day!

My Project

I try to provide hands-on activities for my students, but there are times when you just have to copy or print. For example, I created a matching game to help my students learn everyones' names by printing their pictures and labeling them. These were glued on index cards and made a great matching game for center time. I had to print the pictures black and white, as we are extremely limited on what we are allowed to print in color. I would love to do more of these activities, but am already running low on ink! I would be happy to print so much more at home, for my classroom, if I could get ink cartridges to help me out. Cardstock is another thing we have to buy ourselves. That is why I'm requesting 6 packs of multiple colors of card stock paper.

Please help preserve my students' kindergarten memories by allowing us the ability to print and the paper to print on.

My students and I would be so grateful. It would be a blessing not to worry about running out of ink or card stock for quite a while.
