My Students

My students are 7th and 8th graders who flourish when given the opportunity to express their understanding through creative means.

My students are inquisitive, enthusiastic, and engaged learners.

I try to incorporate many different teaching styles and techniques in my class. I especially like to give my students creative ways to illustrate their understanding of concepts. It's an important lesson for students to learn the importance of using one's strengths and skills to illustrate their learning and growth.

My Project

I am asking for a Cricut Cutting System, a packs of Doodlebug Kraft in Color Paper, a Cricut Chalkboard Cartridge, a set of Die Cuts with A View, a set of Fontastic Fonts, a Cartridge & Tool Storage system, a cutting Mat, and a metallic Color Pen Set to help my students design professional looking projects, lettering, and decorations for classwork. The Cricut Cutting System will provide my students with a tool that merges technology with creativity. It will allow them to create innovative projects, displays, lettering, and images. As my students express their learning through creative means, they will naturally be increasing their level of rigor and higher-order thinking. The Cricut Cutting System will provide my students the application and transfer of knowledge and the ability to communicate effectively through 21st century technology tools. Students will be able to design their own projects, lettering, and visuals on the computer before having the Cricut Cutting System bring their design to life.

My students need a Cricut Cutting System so that they can let their innovation soar.

This system will enrich our learning environment. The display of student work that highlights creative expressions of learning will send a message to my students that their work and their learning are important. They will take pride in having their creativity and learning acknowledged. Our classroom will be one in which it is clear that creativity and technology are two vital pieces of 21st century learning.
