My Students

The students at our school walk in every day ready to learn. They look around their classroom and see children that look different then they do. These students consist of children from all different socioeconomic backgrounds. They come from an area that is filled with many diverse cultures.

Our school is a Title I school, which means often our students do not have access to the newest and most innovative things.

These students are our future and it is important that we get them everything they need!

My Project

For this project, we are looking to get a Cricut for our classroom. By receiving a Cricut, Cricut tools, vinyl, transfer tape, and Cricut Mats, my students will be able to bring their creativity to life! We are all about STEM in my classroom and allowing students to use technology whenever possible. One area we lack with this is when it comes time to be creative.

If my students could use a Cricut to bring their ideas alive, it would allow them to be more excited about being creative.

I think a lot of students dislike art and what comes with it because they feel like they cannot draw or paint. But, with a Cricut our students will be able to make creations using the online software and bring it to life by cutting them out.
