Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

Often time you see students performing poorly in school because they are not praised with incentives.

I want each of my students to know I am proud of them!

So I have created this project asking for certificates, fidget spinners, and pop it toys to thank them for reaching their accelerated reader goals in the third grade. I know the librarian will supply them with a piece of candy, but I believe a certificate and a toy will say to them: Hey keep up the good work and do it again! I'll use the clothes pins, glue gun, and rope to put their certificates on display in the hallway.
