My students are rural Alaskans. They have grown up in a harsh winter environment which makes for tough kids. They love to learn and have goals to help their community, state, nation, and the world. My students are full of questions! They are creative and love hands-on projects that challenge the way they think. They keep at the challenge until they find a viable solution. Everyday they come to school ready to learn new things and build new hypothesis'. Each and everyday my students inspire me to give them more skills to put into their toolboxes!
When it comes to cutting out materials for research projects to bulletin boards scissors just doesn't "cut it." Our bulletin board is 36 feet long and takes a large amount of cutting to get enough to make it look good. It took 2 weeks of cutting at the beginning of the year to get all the elements of the Growth Mindset Bulletin Board. My students enjoy doing extensive research projects and make them look the best they can. Having a Cricut machine is way to cut out elements of their project and be able to really explore their creativity with you on allowing my students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them.
