Goal

With a Cricut machine I can create messages of inspiration and value. I can help promote a kinder and more accepting school community. In addition, I can help students and other teachers create classroom materials to help guide their instruction such as flash cards, bulletin boards and learning centers, to name a few possibilities. I also plan on establishing an enrichment Cricut club for our students.  

 

What will be done with my students

It is very important to teach the whole child. Social and emotional well-being is a necessity to be able to learn! I can guide other teachers to create and leave desk messages for their students, students can design and create school-wide t-shirts to celebrate special moments, students can design and decorate classroom walls, hallways and bathroom stall doors with messages of inspiration.
Teachers and students can also create resources and visuals for the classroom as well as for the school. A Cricut machine can help make manipulatives and displays to help engage students for years to come.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students need to feel empowered, accepted, confident, and worthy from peers and adults. Creating messages across campus and classrooms will instill random acts of kindness and mindfulness to last a lifetime! A Cricut Maker Machine can also make classroom decorations and organizations effortless, making manipulatives for those tactile, kinesthetic, and artistic learners enabling them to succeed academically. Attractive displays can capture students' attention and aid in engagement during a lesson.  

 

Describe the Students

We have a wonderfully diverse culture in our school. Our students have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. They are extremely curious and love learning about everything!
At Ridgecrest we have scholars ranging from low performing social economic, to some of the highest academically achieving in the county. Our population of free and reduced lunch consists of about 50% of our students.

 

 

Budget Narrative

The Cricut Maker machine and the Cricut Easy Press are the main items for making this project possible. In order to create the projects, we will need the other materials such as blades, cutting mats, cardstock, vinyl, and transfer tape. I have priced these items through Amazon since it will be more cost effective.
