My Students

Students enjoying making their projects pop with bubble letters. What better way to allow students to express their creativity than with a simple and safe die cutting machine to use in the classroom.

My students are a diverse group of students coming from moderate level income homes and attending a public school in South Carolina.

My students enjoy hands-on projects and by having a safe and simple die cutting machine, students would be encourage to create eye catching projects.

My Project

Many of my students enjoy expressing their creativity. By allowing them to have access to a simple and safe die cutting machine, they will be able to create fun and exciting poster board projects or display boards. The possibilities of creating fun projects are endless! Please, help my students get a safe and easy die cutting machine with construction paper.

By having a safe and simple die cutting machine, with the various letters, numbers, and symbols, the possibilities of student creations is infinite.

My students will enjoy using such a creative machine to allow their projects to come alive within the Spanish and World Cultures classrooms.
