Help Us Learn About Health And Nutrition!

My students need 1 set of books about healthy habits and a 2nd set of books about food and nutrition. They also need 30 health vocabulary journals.

My Students

Do you remember learning about healthy food choices. My students struggle with healthy habits on a daily basis.

I teach 22 first graders in a Title 1 School located in a high poverty and high crime area in Pennsylvania.

All of my students receive free breakfast and free lunch. At the present time only a small percentage of my students are at the proper reading and math level. Many of my students come from homes where English is not spoken.

My Project

I am requesting books to teach my students about eating properly. My school is a junk free school, however many of my students continue to bring in sugary drinks and snacks. I am hoping that my students will become more aware of what snacks and drinks are healthy and nutritious. I want my students to keep a journal of what foods and drinks are healthy and nutritious.

I am hoping to teach my students about proper nutrition in order that they can be better focused and less jittery during instruction.

Many of my students have a difficult time staying still and paying attention. I want the best for my students.
