Is It Snack Time Yet?

My students need snacks to get them through our long afternoons of learning!

My Students

I teach in an awesome school system with so much potential. We have a mixture of students that live in the suburbs and open-enrollment students from the city. Students come ready to learn; however, they are not always provided with the resources to work to their full potential, both at their homes and at our school due to lack of funding.

I have had the pleasure to house and educate the full-inclusion classroom that is filled with students with and without disabilities for two years now.

I co-teach with a special education teacher. Together we try to create a differentiated, fun lessons that engage ALL students at ALL ability levels. We try to create an atmosphere that accepts student differences and embraces each and every one of their skill levels.

All of the students in our second grade come from diverse backgrounds and many different ability levels. As a team, we try to provide them with multi-modal learning opportunities to make sure we reach every student's needs.

My Project

My students are always so hungry by the afternoon! We eat an early lunch at 1 and have a very long afternoon until they get home around 4. Since I carry out my reading groups in the afternoon, the students are tired which make them very unmotivated to learn and work to their best potential. I am constantly hearing, "Is it snack time yet?" I had an awesome project earlier this year that provided us with snacks until this point, but we have officially ran out. Most of my students come from low-income families with parents who cannot fund snack time for their child.

This project is for my students to have a variety of healthy snacks at their fingertips during snack time so that no child has to go without a snack.

Specifically, the snacks I would like to be able to provide for my students are pretzels and crackers that will provide them with that extra "boost" to get them through the day! I always make sure every student has a snack and to do this, I typically pay out of my own pocket. As I do not mind doing this, I do have to saying paying for 18 student's snacks on a daily basis adds up quickly. It would be amazing to have another project funded that would provide my students with a little pick-me-up in the afternoon to get them focuses and read to learn.

In addition to have many low-income families, I have three students specifically living in a foster care situation. These students have come from homes in which they were malnourished and are always hungry. They look forward to snack time and I am always happy to provide them with healthy opportunities to help them make sure their basic needs are being
