My Students

I have a classroom of twenty-five third-grade students who love to learn new things. I need to keep their attention by varying the activities in and out of the classroom.

Around 400 students attend our elementary school.

We have fifteen classrooms of students at our one-level school. Our small, southern Indiana school is a school-wide Title I facility in which funds are limited. About 80% of our students receive free or reduced-price breakfast, lunch, and book fees. Our school works hard to offer many additional after-school opportunities for our K-6 students like Garden Club (Green Thumbs), Robotics, and Running Club.

My Project

My third graders have had a great time learning how to use the Cricut Maker and Cricut Design Space. They've started helping others learn how to use them, too. My students now want to make their own t-shirt designs, cut them out on the Cricut Maker, and heat press them onto their t-shirts. They need a 12 x 10 Cricut EasyPress and some iron on vinyl. These projects are helping kids learn how to learn important skills. My students are learning STEM skills and making memories all at once. Third grade is so FUN!
