Education Is Opening Doors and Building Emotional Skills

Help me give my students calculators, pens, markers, and pencils while also giving them the items they have said they wanted to earn with their PBIS points.

My Students

Our school is a Title I publicly funded school that serves students with social, emotional, and behavioral needs. Students are provided therapeutic services including counseling, art, music, and recreational therapy in addition to their academics.

Our services are made available to students who might benefit from having a more structured environment with smaller class sizes that exceed no more than 12 students that focus on the social, emotional, and behavioral growth of the individual.

As a school we utilize behavioral support models that track student growth as well as provide positive behavior intervention and supports (PBIS).

As a school we look for ways to implement PBIS but PBIS is also a key daily and weekly component in the classroom. We encourage students strive to do their best and earn rewards for showing positive social, emotional, and behavioral skills.

My Project

Many of my students come from low income families and having things like basic school supplies is not something they can always afford.

Our focus is to educate our students while providing Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports.

The paper, pens, and pencils (Dixon Ticonderoga Pre-Sharpened Woodcase Pencils) are meant to provide supplies for students without those items. The dry erase white boards, dry erase markers, and calculators are meant to support learning as well as provide opportunities for interactive and group lessons.

The coloring supplies (Follow Your Dreams Coloring Book), candy, and toys (Joyin Toy 24 Pack of Mini Animal Plush Toy Assortment, Pokemon Cards) are all part of the positive behavior incentives that my students have specifically asked for.
