As a teacher in a low income school, I serve students who face many challenges in and out of school. My school serves approximately 700 students in grades pre-k to 6th grade. My school has approximately 100 sixth graders in the grade I teach. The 6th grade teachers are teaching in person and online at the same time.
Our entire school qualifies for free lunch this year due to COVID.
I just want to provide my students with a safe, loving, and comfortable environment to brighten their day. Despite the many challenges of COVID, my students are doing the best they can in the classroom and online. They love coming to school and deserve a positive, safe, and comfortable learning environment.
My project is to provide my school's 6th grade students with their own owl pellet to dissect. We have roughly 100 6th graders at my school and half of the students are remote while the other half are in person. It will be a very interesting engaging hands on lesson. We want to provide a fantastic lesson after the crazy Texas weather.
There are snacks listed so we may provide students with treats.
During the storm, some students were left without basic needs like power to stay warm and water.
I also have stickers as daily rewards to provide students with a visual for doing all their daily assignments.
