Creating with Cricut for a Special Needs Classroom

My students need the Cricut Explore Air in our classroom to help create fun visuals for special education needs and aid in classroom organization.

My Students

My students are in 3rd-5th grades in a self-contained setting for students with Emotional/Behavioral Disabilities. Students with these disabilities need help with emotional regulation in a small class setting through social skills training to equip them with the skill set needed to mainstream back into a general education classroom.

Sometimes the students who need our love the most ask for it in the most unloving ways, and our classroom changes students' behaviors, thus changing their lives.

My students are at-risk and that requires us to think outside of the box to make them successful in the classroom. However, they are not defined by their disability. I work daily with future doctors, scientists, teachers, construction workers, nurses, pilots, and whatever else their dreams aspire them to be. The future is in my room now, and I am ready to move mountains to help them be who they are meant to be. Thank you for being a part of our journey!

My Project

The Cricut machine can help us develop individualized lessons to meet each student's needs. We focus on positive rewards and motivation for students with emotional and behavior disabilities. My students will be able to earn rewards using the Cricut Explore Air. As incentives, students who have worked hard can earn the chance to personalize items by designing on the Cricut. Teachers and paraprofessionals will be able to assist students in making visuals needed for calming strategies and academic goals.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) can became STEAM when we add the engaging component of Art!

Students will be motivated using the Cricut Explore Air to be a part of the process for creating classroom visuals to supplement and enhance learning in our special needs classroom.

Thank you for consideration of this project to enhancing our classroom organization, and more importantly, meet the needs of visuals in our special education classroom.
