My Students

My students are very hard working, they love to learn, and love coming to school. They enjoy talking about issues happening in their community and around the world. My student are curious and they like exploring their curiosity through reading and using technology to find research.

The majority of my students come from low-income families.

They enjoy coming to school even if they lack motivation for the day. My students have the greatest sense of humor. They enjoy working in groups and partners to complete a task.

My Project

While my students are hard working and love to learn, there are days were they lack motivation and focus. My project includes a lot of different items to help motivate my students to stay on track. Some of the incentives I have included in my project are items like small pieces of candy, little toys, markers, gel pens, and pencils.

All of these incentives were chosen based on what I know my students will want to earn.

I included name tags to make shout outs to specific students that I know need an extra boost of confidence. While I have a strong classroom management plan, sometimes students just need something tangible like apiece of candy or a mini eraser or a sticker. Those little things can make an enormous difference on the climate of the classroom on a day that is not a typical day as far as behavior. My plan is to also use these incentives for group activities, classroom games, and homework incentives.
