My Students

We are a K-6, Title I school where over 70% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Over 8 different languages are spoken in our school, with a majority being Spanish, Russian/Ukrainian, and Somali. Many of our families are immigrants who are not familiar with the American education system, so a vast majority of our kindergartners come to school not knowing the English language and also not knowing simple foundational skills such as writing their name, recognizing their letters, using scissors, etc.

Despite their struggles, my students persevere in school and want to do well.

They come to school each day with smiles on their faces and are eager to learn. My students love to read and are learning to become great mathematicians. Their excitement is contagious!

My kindergartners come to us with a wide range of prior experiences. My students love hands-on learning experiences. They enjoy participating in shared experiences with their classmates. The kindergartners are very good at sharing, both orally and in written form, things they have learned from hands-on experiences.

My Project

I am requesting a Cricut Maker machine and Cricut Easy Press to use in my classroom for several purposes. The Cricut Maker can be used to create bulletin boards. It will help me to use more creativity in projects. The Easy Pres will be used to help create a class identity, such as class shirts! Students will be able to use both machines to design and create their project boards. The Cricut machine would greatly decrease the amount of time I spend prepping and allow me to focus on teaching.

By funding this project you are allowing me and my students to use more creativity in displays and projects.

Donations to this project will improve my classroom because it will create more opportunities for learning and using hands-on exploration.

I will learn how to use this resource across the curriculum and grow as an educator. I plan to explore how I can incorporate this technology into STEAM and project-based learning. My goal is to be more technology based on my teaching and feeling this will add another avenue for my students.

Thank you for helping me reach my goals this year!
