Ms. Amador from Miami FL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Think it! Create it! Act it!

My students need the Cricut Easy Press and necessary activities to create their own costumes and props for the school production. The toner is needed for the classroom printer.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income school my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. I want to give my students the opportunity to be creative, clever and spontaneous.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

All of my students are ready to take the stage. We just need help in creating our costumes and props. My students have been giving up countless hours to the drama program. The class allows the students to imagine, create and be whoever they want. Often times, my students find it difficult to get the necessary materials, costumes, and props needed to make their characters come to life.

With the use of the Cricut accessories my students will be able to design and create their own costumes, props, backgrounds and much more.

The possibilities will be endless.

The donations from this project will help us bring our characters to life.
