My Students

My students need a variety of motivating food reinforcers that include crackers, healthy chips, candy, nuts/trail mix, water.

My students face challenges every day learning and I'm always looking for effective ways to enhance their skills.

A supply of snacks will motivate all of my students and help them build functional skills. Working with special education students in an urban, high-need community. My students range in age from 10-13 years old and have a wide range of skills they are willing and have the urge but, they are unable to retain focus with the thoughts of low energy. Some of my students simply don't get enough food. The meals they get at the school are often the best (or only) meals they receive all day.

My Project

During direct instruction my students must have a clear understanding of what they are working for and must be motivated enough by the final outcome to complete the task. They don't have the intrinsic motivation to complete school work and most times food is the ultimate motivator! My students benefit from having a variety of food reinforcement choices. I am requesting healthy chips, Goldfish, crackers, candy, nuts/trail mix, breakfast bars and water to name a few. My students are motivated to initiate exchanges and make requests for food and drinks. I purchase food items every week. Unfortunately, the school district does not have a budget to reimburse me for these items, and the parents of our students face their own monetary challenges and can't contribute classroom snacks. A supply of food reinforcers will motivate my students daily.
