My students need books about Healthy Habits, and a book display to keep materials in good condition for years to come.
Have you ever tried to focus on your work while hungry? My 2nd grade students have the last lunch period at our school, so I allow them to bring in healthy snacks, and I provide one for those who can't. This process has taught them to share and give, but most of all about healthy food choices.
My students live in a well known urban center, characterized by street violence and negativity.
But if you take a look into the heart of this very rough neighborhood, you will find that there are caring parents who take great pride in family, culture, and access to quality education. My students are an enthusiastic and creative group of second graders comprised of both African American and Latino children. When my students hear the word "snack", they tend to think of chips, cookies or candy. Knowing I didn't want them to fill up on junk foods each day, I asked them to bring healthy foods. They responded very well, and now the kids eat fruits, crackers, and yogurt each day. I am really proud of the way these young children have made conscious decisions about their food choices. This project will help teach them WHY making healthy choices is important. One day, they will choose fruits over chips, not just because I asked them to, but because they've been educated about health.
I am requesting books to engage students in lessons on staying healthy. We also need a book display shelf to keep the materials in great condition. The books focus on a range of topics, including healthy food choices, exercise, and staying safe. My students will be able to read their books, and have dialogue about making healthy choices. Young children absolutely love to make their own choices. It makes them feel responsible. This project will give them an opportunity to read, learn, write about, and act upon their new knowledge about having healthy habits.
My students are young, but making healthy choices can impact the rest of their lives.
This project has the potential to reach both students and their families, as conversations about healthy habits go from school to home. This is an opportunity to teach children about healthy choices while they are very willing to learn all about it. Your donation can help make this happen. Thank you for considering a donation to our class project.Read More
