I am a kindergarten teacher and am highly anticipating the arrival of the glowforge. I don’t know how many primary school teachers there are out there but I was wondering about ideas for classroom use. I work with my kids on several computer programs including sketch up and various paint programs so designing lessons around those will be fairly straight forward.
I also had an idea to take care of letter tiles we use on a weekly basis with the kids. As we learn to sound out words we use plastic tiles and they tend to get really dirty and I don’t like to use them when we have a cold going around. So in our lunchroom we have a plethora of cardboard handy so I can just cut out a set for each kid and then send them home. I have tried to do this with paper before, but they didn’t hold up too well over the course of a week.
Any ideas from the community would be fantastic!
