The Cricut will allow students to increase the creativity of their learning and make the choices that express their individuality. During independent work times they will be able to use the Cricut to create independent projects that interest them. They will also be able to use the Cricut to enhance their school projects. The teachers in our school will also benefit for using the Cricut to enhance the atmosphere of their classrooms or to use it to make instructional materials. Making sure students are excited and engaged is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their options for creating projects.. They almost always make good choices about what they want to create. They are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just told what we are going to do that day. My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of what to work on when they are given a broad choice of materials to work with in class. The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them choices of mediums to make more creative learning choices. The Cricut will allow students to explore with many mediums and express themselves in ways they haven't been able to do so before. I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options given to them through the providing the Cricut will open up many avenues of creativity and expression.
