Cricut for a Creative Classroom
Help me give my students the opportunity for a more creative and inviting learning environment with a Cricut machine. This machine will drastically change teacher preparation and resources for our students.
My 2nd grade students are from Marshall, Virginia. I teach all of the 2nd grade (about 50 students) math. I have two other teammates who teach science, social studies, and language arts. Many of our students come from low income families, but they all come with loving hearts and desire to learn. We want to keep that spark in them.
Our students come to us with all different ways of learning and we are looking to reach every single one of them with opportunities they may not have at home.
Some students come in with a wealth of background knowledge and experiences, but many do not. We are mostly limited to the classroom to try and create those experiences for them. Our second graders have so much to offer and we want to do everything we can to pull that out of them and make them shine.
We are requesting a Cricut machine, paper, vinyl, cutting mat, and tools to help create an inviting learning environment to help reach our children's fullest potential.
We will use the Cricut machine to make bulletin boards, flash cards, learning centers, bulletin boards, motivational quotes/décor, and creative extension projects to help reach all of our learners.
The Cricut will also help to keep our rooms and students organized to promote an inviting learning environment. We will also be able to create alphabet letters in a variety of sizes and materials. We will be able to create hands-on academic games and activities. We can also make t shirt designs for field trips and school activities.
The Cricut machine would allow us more time to spend teaching rather than prepping. The possibilities with a Cricut are endless. Which, in turn, makes opportunities endless for our students.
