My Project

This coming holiday I would like to provide my students with a Christmas tree and decorations for the classroom. As a special surprise, I would like to provide my students with a stocking filled with a few goodies. Stockings will be hung in the classroom before winter break. They will be filled with a Hot Chocolate Pack, Candy, and a Puzzle game to help them stay focused in class. Each stocking will have a student's name written on the tag.

Many of my students come from lower economic situations and do not have the luxury of a Christmas Tree, Gifts, or Decorations.

I hope this special surprise will help cheer up my students through the holiday season.

I teach students with special education and 504 disabilities. A lot of students struggle to get to winter break. My hope is my students will stay motivated to finish out their first-semester strong with some extra love and goodies. An incentive to keep pushing themselves.
