Ms. Damus from Miami FL is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students sweet incentives to reward them for their hard work and academic achievements.
My students come from an inner city. We are a Title I school, which means that 98% of our children are on free and reduced lunch. The majority of my students are ESOL, so English is not their first language. I also have a few ESE (exceptional student education), who are visual and tactile learners.
My fourth grade class is a diverse group of students who are excited to learn in a welcoming environment.
This school year, I am fortunate to teach 45 effervescent students.
I would like to reward my students with sweet treats like Pixy Stix, Smarties, and M&Ms for their efforts, hard work, and academics accomplishments. Over the years, I have found that students are willing to push a little harder when they receive incentives for their hard work. Last year, I started rewarding my students with treats every time they earned an "A" on a chapter test, achieved a 100% on I-Ready (a computer-based learning tool), showed improvement, or were caught doing the right thing. I was amazed at how with just a sweet treat, my little Mathematicians were more motivated, engaged, and willing to take on difficult tasks. As a result, my students excelled on their end of the year standardized test.
My students are go-getters!
Throughout the school year, I set many challenges before them. Regardless of the challenge, they rise to the occasion and excel! You can help continue this momentum by contributing to our project.
