My Students

My students come to school and are excited to learn new things every day. They keep me on my toes with their inquisitive minds and their desire to work in collaborative groups. Our school is a Title I school. We are located in a small community where every student is given the opportunity to become a lifelong learner. My goal as their teacher is to provide a comfortable environment for them to care about their work in and outside the classroom.

My Project

The Silhouette will allow my students to create some amazing projects within our classroom. We will also be able to create high quality posters for some of our project based learning activities. Many students struggle with design and drawing for their projects this machine will allow them to easily print right from their iPads. How exciting will it be for students to design shirts on our iPads and have it print right in our classroom.

Our class is trying to incorporate more art into our classroom, STEM activities are a big component in which I try shape our class's curriculum around.

With this said, our class is in need of a printer that cuts different materials to create projects for all different subjects. I cannot wait to see how creative the students will be! My hope for the Silhouette is to get them excited about paper-pencil assignments with the use of this technology. My kids will be astounded to see their designs on the computer become a reality when the machine cuts the material. My students are usually not exposed to this type of creative technology and have not had the opportunity to design on the computer. We will be able to create visual art projects integrated with our science, literacy, and social studies units. All these supplies will allow my students to begin utilizing the Silhouette, the extra blades, and the vinyl sheets as soon as it arrives. Thank you for your support and generosity to our class.
