My Students

Our school is a Title I elementary school located in a high poverty area of the city. We have a diverse group, with the largest student population being primarily African-American. Over 95% of our students receive free and reduced-price lunch. Many of our students come from a place of trauma. Our staff was recently trained so our school can become a trauma sensitive school.

For most students, our school is their haven, a place of safety and security.

In spite of the disadvantages, these kids are loving, bright, and inquisitive.

They have lots of energy and very little chances to move outside of the classroom. Movement and flexible seating is a big part of what I do to help counterbalance their busy bodies in my classroom.

My Project

I am requesting snacks for my First Graders. My students are always asking for something to eat because small children have small stomachs and cannot eat enough in one meal for them to stay full. They should be able to snack every three to four hours over the course of the day. My students are always asking for a morning and an afternoon snack.

Snacking throughout the day not only ensures kids stay full, it also helps them learn healthy eating habits, like eating appropriate amounts and only when they're hungry.

Small, healthy snacks throughout the day prevents patterns of boredom eating or eating based on emotional factors. Children need to be able to refuel throughout the day to maintain energy and focus on academics. When asking my students what they want me to bring to the classroom, their answer is consistent with asking me to bring snacks! When I asked them what types of snacks they would like, they told me Combos, Gardetto's, fruit snacks, goldfish crackers, Chex Mix, and granola bars.
