My students will develop financial literacy skills, and use the requested Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine, vinyls, tools, beginner kit and paper to create products such as cards, stickers, and banners. My students need a Cricut machine, Cricut tools, card stock and multiple themes of Cricut cartridges to help them learn in a creative way! A Cricut is an amazing electronic cutting machine. Just as a printer will use ink to print what you put on the computer screen, a Cricut will cut out the objects on its screen. This machine will allow the students to pick images, shapes, characters, letters, math manipulatives, etc.. and cut them out. The possibilities are endless. We will be able to create new math and literacy centers and provide the differentiation that is needed among students. I believe it will really help the students that need the hands-on experiences, with actually manipulating things such as letters in a word or counting numbers or objects for math. The more hands-on, the more memorable lessons help to make learning fun and exciting for not only the students this year, but for years to come. I believe active and concrete experience is the most powerful form of learning. The Cricut Expression will enable these types of opportunities, and allow me to bring hands-on learning to life! The materials my students and I will create using this machine, will support the curriculum and promote growth in all areas of development. By providing information in a visual manner, I will be better equipped to support their developmental needs.
