My Students

I'm a proud South Carolina teacher of twenty-one, curious, first grade students. My students are amazing! They are creative, kind, and strive for excellence! Like all children, they love interaction and need engagement! We are working on building our social emotional skills which will set them up for success now, and in the future.

My Project

My classroom needs a Cricut cutting machine. We use bulletin boards and displays throughout our room to share information with students, promote awareness events/celebrations, and to teach/reinforce concepts. The students really enjoy the interactive bulletin boards. To create our bulletin boards, we are tracing and cutting out letters, buying letters, tracing, coloring, and cutting out pictures, or writing directly on the bulletin board paper. This is a time consuming process. The Cricut machine will be used to create engaging displays and bulletin boards for students. The machine will be a huge time saver and offers a wide variety design options.

Students need a welcoming and engaging environment to learn, grow, and thrive.

A Cricut machine and the materials that go with it will help to create eye catching displays in our classroom. This item will also help me, as a teacher, keep their classroom organized through the use of the labels.
