My Students

My kindergarten class is comprised of 27 amazing students. They are kind and thoughtful scholars! Most of my students are English language learners. Some come from bilingual households but most are the first ones in their family to learn English. My students receive free breakfast and lunch at school, along with free uniforms. 80% of the families are unemployed. I also have students that are in foster care. Regardless of what is going on at home, my kindergarten students are eager to learn. They want to be successful and like to come to school. For most of them it is their first time in school and they have not had the benefit of preschool or the experiences that come with going to preschool. I have learned that my students learn best with hands-on learning activities and real-life integrated curriculum that is relatable to my students. Overall, my students are amazing.

My Project

My students are hungry in the afternoon They receive free breakfast and lunch, but they don't come to school with a snack for the afternoon. It's really hard to focus on learning and schoolwork when you're hungry. They need their bellies to be full so their brains can focus on their classwork. Food is a basic need and there's so much academically that's being demanded of my students for them to learn this year. They really need snacks. They LOVE crackers, chips, gummies, granola bars, and goldfish.

It makes them so happy when they get a snack in the afternoon.

Not only will they receive a snack during our bathroom/ water break in the afternoon but they will also get a snack to take home with them everyday. This would truly be a blessing for my students.
