My Students

This project is for my homeroom/advisory students. I am responsible for making sure they start the day off right and cheering them up at the end of a rough day. I miss seeing them at the beginning and end of every day.

I especially miss our dance parties to "Be Nice" by the Black Eyed Peas.

I know they miss seeing each other and participating in their weekly community circle. Since starting distance learning, my students have not gotten the same social-emotional learning experience as when schools were open. I want to support the mental health and social-emotional well-being of my homeroom/advisory students.

My Project

The art and other creative materials will be used during our virtual "Community Circle" time with each other on Zoom. We will paint works of art inspired by Bob Ross and create rainbow scratch masterpieces. The scented play-dough and stress ball will serve as manipulatives during meditation.

I want my students to know that I care about them as human beings first.

Some of my students are struggling and I want them to know that I am thinking about them. Some snacks on this list, like the oatmeal and jerky, are more practical in case students need food. While other snacks, like chips, cookies and candy, are a treat to thank my students for their resilience and continual effort to learn. Additionally, I chose to include mints because of the potential benefits of peppermint - including the ability to reduce feelings of stress and boost feelings of calm.

Please note that any extra care packages will be distributed to other students in need.
