My Students

Our school, located in an urban area, is composed of 80% English Language Learners and about 20% students with special needs. Our school enrolls a little over 300 students between early childhood through fifth grade.

Most of our students speak another language and are learning English.

Students come from such countries as Colombia, El Salvador, and Peru. Some students are new to the country and others have were born here, but they are still acquiring academic language. They all receive free breakfast and lunch.

As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with an organized and meaningful learning environment.

My Project

We are in need of prozes that will help my students stay focused. This project is for my all students but especially those students with with ADHD and Autism. These active learners need things to help them stay on task. Some of these incentives will be used as fidget toys that will allow my students to move quietly while they work. Students will be able to manipulate the toys with their hands while listening to a lesson. These supplies help high energy workers fidget without distracting others. They also discreetly sooth student anxiety, frustration, and hyperactivity.

The rewards are used as incentives to reward students that stay on task and show the correct behavior.

The incentives are also used to reward students when they show good behavior, do well on specific tasks or pass a goal that they have set for themselves during the school year.
