Every single morning when my students arrive at school They should’ve eaten breakfast to give them a little bit of fuel. A bowl of cereal, some toast with jelly or two pancakes, syrupy and round Would make a good morning meal to help keep their hunger down. Unfortunately, some of my students do not eat anything at the start of the day. They won’t eat lunch until close to noon, so they have nothing to keep the growls at bay. One day in the cafeteria. . . Chatting with a student, I told him, “I wish you’d talk like this while we’re in class.” To me, he quickly replied, “I wish that, too, but I’m sometimes out of gas.” It’s clear that it’s hard for my students to learn. They simply do not have any energy to burn. My 4th grade students need a snack to attack the hunger that weighs on their bellies and affects their minds. A little something on their tummies would do wonders to help them make it to lunchtime. As English Language Learners, they are faced with many challenges as they learn from nine to noon. With a few extra calories, I am sure they’ll make improvements soon. A handful of pretzels, crackers, raisins or another dry, non-messy snack Would satisfy my 28 and keep them from being under the attack Of that hungry monster that rages deep inside. They’ll be able to read, write, listen and speak better which will ultimately fill them with pride. I teach 4th grade at an elementary school on Chicago’s northwest side, which serves a very high, low-income population. There are over 1,200 students enrolled in grades Pre-K through 6. Over 72% of the student body is Latino with 36.4% of the entire school being English Language Learners. Students at my school represent countries from all over the world, including Bosnia, Burma, Cambodia, Honduras, Korea, Mexico and Somalia. Thank you for considering my proposal.
