Mrs. Bachonski from Manchester NJ is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chirp Chirp, We Need a Cricut 2 Explore & Create!

My students need a Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine Bundle to use to enhance projects in the content areas. They could create 3D printables to use for mathematics or even items to use for maker projects.

My Students

The 400 plus kind-hearted students of our K-5 school represent a diverse population of learners. Our Title I school is a special place that embraces the differences within our community. Our children are met daily with nurturing smiles and captivating inviting environments, where learning takes place.

Our school has amazing and creative teachers that aspire to engage students with great instructional resources.

To meet the needs of our diverse population of students, teachers are always searching for out of the box tools and techniques to give students great visuals. Our students thrive and do best when they are engaged. Their desire to learn is what drives our teachers to reinvent themselves by using innovative tools for instruction.

My Project

Our school is going through a period of growth and evolution just as our students are. We have technology available for our students to use and our library has been recently updated to make it an inviting environment. However, what we are lacking are creative tools to use for resources. A Cricut 2 machine would allow the students to create 3D resources, like geometric cutouts for mathematics. In addition, a tool like the Cricut could be used for maker activities where students can create templates or even blueprints for tinkering.

This project would benefit the students and staff of our school because its creative possibilities are limitless and would allow our students to utilize an innovative tool that could enhance all academic areas.

Every child deserves to have the best resources available. Our students thrive most when they have exciting tools like the Cricut at their disposal to use for resources.
