CANDY: My Students' Love Language!

My students need to have candy in our classroom that they can receive as a reward for their hard work.

My Students

I have 32 wonderful 6th-grade students. Many of them come from very rough backgrounds. Our school is in San Bernardino and is one of the lower performing schools in our district. At our school, 100% of our students receive free lunch, and many stay after school to attend the after-school CAPS program. Most of my students live in the low-income apartments located across the street from our school. They are extremely sweet, kind, and smart individuals, but need a lot of love and support to help them through the things they are facing on a daily basis.

My Project

Sweets can play a powerful role in a classroom. Even as a student myself, I remember reaping the benefits of turning in my homework all week by receiving a jolly rancher, or feeling special when my teacher threw me a piece of licorice for responding to a prompt with a well-thought-out response.

I would love to replenish my candy supply so that I have it on-hand to reward students when needed.

Students love candy, and it tends to disappear rather quickly in my room because I love being able to use it as a reward for those students that do not get treats very often outside of school. A piece of candy can seem like a small thing to us, but can completely change a students whole day, or even week.
