My Students

My preschool friends are a part of a small and close-knit community. Most importantly, they are a part of my school family! In our classroom, we work very hard to make everyone feel safe and welcome. My classroom includes children ranging from age three to five.

While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.

My preschoolers inspire me to be the best that I can be. They hold such a special place in my heart! They are all wonderful in different ways. I love watching them play, learn, and grow!

My Project

My preschool friends need materials and manipulatives that they can physically touch and feel. With the Cricut Maker, I will be able to cut out letters for my students to practice their names, letter work, and spell out simple words. I will also be able to cut out numbers to help my students gain various math skills. I will also be able to label things in the classroom for students to read and write familiar words.

There are endless possibilities for how the Cricut Maker can be used in our classroom!

We could make storytelling props, t-shirts, labels, manipulatives, games, various art projects, etc. This machine can really help enhance my student's learning.
