Mrs. Milleza from San Francisco CA is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Food for Thought

Help me give my students the food and snacks they need to maintain their energy level that is required for all the thinking, learning, and hard work they do throughout the school day.

My Students

My first graders are a group of creative, energetic, and out of the box thinkers! They challenge me to teach in new and innovative ways so that they can learn based on their individual ways. With some of my students having autism and others needing social/emotional support, I've had to be creative in the way I give them access to learning. Since over 90% of my first graders come from low socio-economic backgrounds, many of them have not experienced, nor do they have access to, diverse materials that enhance their learning experiences when they are outside of school. It is at my school and in my classroom that I must provide my students with a rich experience that will help them develop a love for learning and feel successful as a learner!

My Project

By providing these snacks, my students will be able to reenergize throughout the day. The Kellogg's protein bars and belVita crackers will help give the mid morning boost my students need in between breakfast and lunch so they can concentrate on writing and phonics. The Goldfish and Cheese-It crackers will fuel their minds for the last couple hours of the school day while working on reading, science, and social studies.

These items will help grow the hungry minds and bodies of the six and seven year olds that learn in my class, allowing them to focus on academics and not hunger.
