My Students

My school has at least 1/3 of our students on free and reduced lunch. We have a very diverse group of ethnicities which makes us unique. At this age, it is very hard to motivate students. I would like to find personal ways so that all the students can benefit from. Our students have to make a lot of mature decisions and don't always choose wisely. This age is very tough because they are going through so many social and emotional changes.

My Project

I recently received a Cricut machine to use in my classroom. I now need additional supplies to help make it truly successful. I would like to purchase a way to organize all the supplies within my classroom which is why I would like to have a rolling cart to store all of the vinyl. Since I will be using the vinyl as a means to decorate my classroom with inspirational quotes, I need vinyl for that. I also want it to look more inviting which is why I would like to have picture frames to display the quotes on my walls. I thought this would look cleaner and more inviting.
