My Students

My students attend a Title I school in a high-poverty area outside of Philadelphia. They have low parental support and do not come to school with the basic supplies needed to succeed. They deal with many challenges before their school day even begins, and still come into the classroom with a smile on their face. As high-risk students, they rely on the comfortable classroom environment we create to feel secure while they learn and grow.

They are 2nd graders who push each other to learn and grow to their full potential.

They are eager to learn and willing to forget about their hardships to better themselves. Our goal is to create a classroom of life-long learners.

My Project

The balls, bean bags, and stools will make a tremendous difference in my classroom! My students will use the variety of seats to meet their individual needs and allow them a way to find a comfortable spot where they can both share materials and space while being productive in the learning environment!

In addition, to promote positive behaviors and a calm, comfortable classroom environment, my students need behavior trackers and rewards.

The individual tools will allow students to keep track of their own behavior and determine what they need to do to reach their specific goal. Last, what better way to celebrate this success than with a treasure box of prizes? These toys will help keep students focused and on task to reaching their behavior goal!
