My Students

Sixth-grade students are transitioning from elementary to middle school, and it's no easy task for them. Learning new schedules, making new friends, and needing to be accepted among peers are a few adjustments they must make. Some are military children who have moved several times, but they persevere. Over half of the student population is from low income families, but this hasn't been used as an excuse for low performance academically nor for social misbehavior. My class population includes a variety of cultures, ethnic groups and backgrounds. The students range from gifted and talented to students with special needs.

I love when my students are giving and caring towards each

other. The students share what they have even when its a little bit.

If one of the students forget their lunch or don't have lunch money there is always a student who will offer part of their lunch.

Students are bouncing back from Hurricane Florence. They have lunch at 10:30 am and their last class of the day ends at 3:30 pm. Some bus riders are on a bus ride for thirty minutes to an hour each day.

My Project

"School-age children (ages 6 to 12) need healthy foods and nutritious snacks. They have a consistent but slow rate of growth and usually eat four to five times a day (including snacks). Eating healthy after-school snacks is important, too, as these snacks may contribute up to one-third of the total calorie intake for the day." according to standardchildren.org.

I see how little sixth grade students eat during school lunch each day.

Many of them throw food away for various reasons. By the end of day their performance decreases due to lack of energy or the foods they consumed. Foods which didn't add any nutritious benefits to their growing brains and bodies. Children should have two snacks a day according to healthyeating.sfgate.com.

Sixth grade teachers have set aside a snack time, but many of students who need the snack are not bringing a snack from home. The goal of this project is to fill many little bellies with a snack at the end of the day. I would like to provide students with a small nutritious snack during their last class of the day.

Nutritious snacks would help students concentrate and focus more at the end of the day. It would also help balance their blood sugars and lastly it would provide the nutrition demands of their growing bodies and brains.
