Makerspace - Cricut Creativity

Help me give my students the ability to use more advanced tools using a Cricut Maker to give us the freedom to make any DIY project you can imagine: 3D art, home decor, jewelry, iron-on, vinyl, paper projects!

My Students

Each quarter I have the privilege of teaching 150 6th, 7th and 8th-grade students. Our students come from a low-income/high poverty school district, right next to Chicago. Even with our situation, our students (and staff) make the most of every opportunity we can. Recently our school created a new Exploratory STEAM class. We do a lot of wonderful projects with limited resources.

My students are incredibly creative, lively, and fun to teach!

They love all of the new ideas this STEAM class has to offer. My students are a blast to teach every day, and we are always looking for new/better ideas to add to our growing curriculum.

My Project

A Cricut Maker machine with cutting accessories and supplies will allow my STEAM students to create vinyl decals that promote positive messages in the hallways, bathrooms, bulletin boards, in our and classrooms and throughout our building.

We plan on displaying positive messages like "You are amazing, you are brave, you are strong";​ "you are somebody's reason to SMILE", etc so that students are reminded daily that they are loved and cared about.

We will create lessons that correlate to educational standards engaging my students by creating what they can visualize. This will lead my students to be more innovative and view creativity as an essential skill, that will empower my students to change the world and become new designers of tomorrow.
