I teach at an inner city, low-income school in Indianapolis. A full 100% of the students at my school receive free lunch. My 28 fourth graders come to school with differing needs and backgrounds, but they are all willing and ready to learn and grow.
Although most of my students come to school without daily necessities, I believe it is my duty to provide them with a safe and comfortable environment where they can do their best each and every day.
My students are tremendously hardworking and strive to grow, create, and learn!
My scholars are in need of a "sprucing up" of our classroom incentives that they can earn throughout the school day/week. We are asking for the following materials: treats, kinetic sand, candy, stress balls, and fidget toys, to earn throughout the school day.
We ask so much of such young learners, it is critical that they feel supported and rewarded for their hard work and responsibility.
My school is in a unique position of being an innovation school within a public school network. We have a very rigorous academic curriculum and expect so much out of our scholars. We push and push scholars to perform their best every single day, and I believe that they should feel appreciated and get celebrated for that hard work.
I am requesting materials for our classroom treasure box, as well as whole class rewards. These rewards will be used for students that show up every single day with their best attitude and work ethic, for awesome behavior and citizenship, and for meeting or exceeding personal and whole class goals. These items include squishy toys, molding sand, and snacks.
