Incredible Incentives for Incredible Students!

My students need incentives such as toys and stickers for their amazing behavior in class!

My Students

I am a first-grade teacher at an inner-city school. I am privileged to work with 50 amazing children who are eager to learn and use any learning tools they are given. My students have a tremendous amount of learning to do this upcoming year, and most of it happens from repetition and practice.

They like to read, participate, and ask questions!

Working as an elementary teacher in a low-income and high poverty inner-city district is challenging itself. My students face several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Whichever challenge they meet, I strive to provide my students with the creative and meaningful learning experience they deserve!

My Project

To keep my students motivated, we have a classroom store! Sadly, we ran out of incentives! It saddens me because my students have been doing so well behaviorally and in their academics! They need the motivation to keep going throughout the year!

I have seen a huge difference in behavior and motivation since I started the store with the incentives.

We have a behavior chart and our classroom store and every time a student reaches Super Student (the goal behavior) three times, they get to choose a prize from the prize box! They can also earn a certain amount of money to earn a reward.

It is amazing to watch students raise their hands for participation full of excitement, and try their best to earn a grade of ninety or higher in assessments in order for students to move up to Super Student.

The prize box should always be filled with exciting rewards in order for students to earn them. We desperately need new incentives to keep the behaviors down and the learning up!

Thank you for supporting my students by knocking down the barrier to resources that are necessary for their success.

I very much appreciate your consideration in this matter and sincerely hope you will view my request favorably and provide the requisite funds.
