My Students

My students are very special first graders in a high needs area of a borough in New York. Each student is unique in his or her own way and deserves to have the best educational experience possible! Most of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch and come to school every day eager to learn.

Unfortunately, my classroom does not always have the supplies we need.

Every donation makes a difference in my students' lives. I look forward to creating projects that will make our classroom a joyful learning environment. Thank you!

My Project

Students who do the right thing day after day should be rewarded by going to the treasure box. I am requesting your help in developing a student reward center in my classroom. Small rewards or prizes bring such excitement to the eyes of my students.

My students deserve to be rewarded for working hard, and I would like to provide them with opportunities.

I'm requesting support with student incentives, such as Play-Doh, slime, and squishies used to foster positive behavior. Making good choices and being kind to one another is paramount in my classroom. This will help my students learn that they can earn the things they want by doing what they are supposed to do. Student will self-reflect and ask themselves, "Did I use my accountable talk stems, or did I do my best today?" This will create personal challenges for those who make mistakes to create change and foster new behaviors. The ultimate goal for the classroom is to follow classroom rules. The #1 rule is to do their best and show it. We will also use rewards to celebrate all the growth we have made socially and academically.

This project is important because it would give my students something to look forward to when they are doing the right thing daily. This will highlight those who follow rules, being great citizens, and doing their best. Your generous donation will be treasured in our classroom every day!
