My students need snacks to eat and to take home at night to help them stay focused. It is very hard to concentrate when you're hungry.
Any teacher in a low income or Title I school such as mine, knows that our students are faced with many challenges in and outside of the classroom. My students are no exception. The transition during between elementary and middle school is already a tough one, and every student that I teach has an emotional disability, some have dual disabilities.
My students are in a daily struggle with their own emotions and have to make a conscious effort to avoid outbursts.
Learning and processing information can be challenging for them due to their emotions and excess energy.
They come from high poverty areas. School is often their comfort place that provides food as well as stability. Our school receives Title I funding. Our classroom is like a community, and I want the students to feel comfortable and safe while learning.
My students need snacks to eat and more water through out the day and to take home at night to help them stay focused. Many of my students go without dinner at home and are hungry when they come to school, school breakfast is not substantial enough to replace two meals. It is very hard to concentrate when you're hungry. Snacks help the students to stay motivated during the day and a snack to take home would help them sleep better at night and not be as hungry in the morning.
I would be very thankful for some help to provide them a snack when they are hungry.
A little bit of food to fill their belly could go a long way in helping them be successful.
