Mrs. P. from Lackawanna NY is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Cricut Creativity

Help me give my students a Cricut Machine to help enhance our classroom projects. With a Cricut Machine, we will be able to design better projects, bulletin boards, room decor and create gifts for special occasions.

My Students

I work with a very diverse group of fifth grade students. They are all very different and have their own special qualities. I work in a low-income district where getting pencils and supplies from home for students is very difficult. I have some students who get what they need, and other students who struggle day to day.

I want to help my students experience the best that school has to offer, without the stress of contributing.

I am able to stock up on supplies and help out occasionally on my own, and I am also able to get some of the supplies from my school supply budget. However, there is only so much to go around.

My Project

I would love to add a Cricut Machine to our Imagination Station. In my classroom, I have quite a few very creative students and most don't have the resources of their own to create new and interesting projects.

A Cricut Machine would be a great tool to help the students design better bulletin boards, wall and door designs and create gifts for special occasions.

I like to incorporate project based learning when I can in the classroom. Based off of resources, we have to create simple projects. This machine will challenge my students and give them a chance to bring their work to life.
