3D Pens Promote Positive Learning Experiences!

Help me give my students positive behavior rewards to explore financial literacy with 3D pens and refills.

My Students

My students are enthusiastic and artsy 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. They love learning something new whether it is a new skill... technique... or artist.

At my school students are served art class starting in the 3rd grade so coming to the art room should be really special for them.

My school has a diverse student body with a multicultural background. I love that my students are kind and accepting of all no matter our differences. My students are adventurous and are never afraid of making mistakes-they dive into art full heartedly drawing with black oil pastels that don't erase. I frequently see them admiring each others art hanging in the hall. It brings me great joy to see them smile and point out their own art and their favorites.

My Project

At my school students are encouraged with positive behavioral rewards. Students can earn Bobcat Bucks by being positive and promoting safety, as well as working hard and being responsible.

Students will be able to exchange their Bobcat Buck rewards toward activity incentives that are fun and engaging- These 3d pens will encourage students to save and spend their hard earned rewards in the art room.

These pens are a fantastic addition to the art room. I love seeing the excitement in my students eyes when they get to use these materials. Financial literacy is about saving up to spend money on wants and needs. This project will encourage both knowledge of financial literacy and creativity in my students.
