Making Learning Hands-On

Help me give my students the Brother Scan and Cut to allow me to create games, personalize our classroom, and provide hands on learning experiences for my PreK students.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many of them are being raised in single parent households. I teach at a Title I school in Virginia where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students participate in a full-day, high-quality instructional program for preschool students identified as at risk for early academic challenges.

In my classroom we work to give these students the best possible start so that they will be successful in kindergarten and beyond. My students are loving, inquisitive, and active. They like to move and love praise.

My Project

I hope to improve my students sorting, counting, matching, writing and reading skills with the extra practice teacher made activities can provide. The Scan and Cut 2 will allow me to make colorful, fun and engaging games and activities to help my students learn.

I currently spend hours laminating and cutting out materials to use in my classroom.

The Scan and Cut 2 will allow me to quickly cut out word wall vocabulary cards and pictures for our writing webs. It will allow me to make matching games (such as upper and lowercase letters) to match our various themes.

I will also share this cutter with all the teachers in my building. I am requesting the Scan and Cut Online Activation card that will allow teachers to connect to the machine wirelessly and send designs to it. By allowing them access, they can make shirts, bookmarks, stickers, awards, and bulletin board pieces with ease. Elementary teachers spend a huge amount of time prepping items for students. This cutting machine will be a huge time saver for all of us!
