Help Motivate My Students!

My students need positive motivation to do well on our state test. With TNready coming up, students are preparing to take this test. I have found some food incentives that I need help purchasing.

My Students

I teach at an inner city school in TN. On average, I teach about 115 students. We are a Title I school and many of the students qualify for free/reduced lunch. Some of the students are optional students and participate in performing arts programs such as drama, band, piano, etc. Our school and students work to create an atmosphere that inspires students to try and reach their goals. My students are amazing and special people to me. Please help if you can.

My Project

Having these rewards will help get my students prepared and focused for our state test. With these food products, I can have test prep sessions and provide rewards for students who studied and did well. I want all students to be motivated even if that means I have to provide some extrinsic motivation. This will be the first time in 5 years that students have had to take a social studies test that counts and I really need to motivate them and show them that it is possible to do well but we need to work hard in order to achieve this.

Thanks
