My Students

My third graders come to school every day because they know it is a safe place where someone will protect and care about them. Ninety percent of the students attending my school qualify to receive free or reduced-price lunch. They come from broken families or parents who work multiple jobs just to pay rent. It is hard for them to continue their learning at home because parents are working hard to make ends meet, or they simply don't have any materials to work with. Due to this fact, many of them are below grade level and struggling to get caught up.

My Project

We are beginning to implement a program called PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System), where students are rewarded for being safe, respectful, and responsible throughout the school. With this program, students learn how to be contributing members of our school society, take ownership of their actions and earn points for good behavior. These points can be used to "buy" things. Right now, I'm trying to build up my own class "store".

I want my students to be motivated and doing their best at all times.

I want students to be highly interested in the items we have in the store, so that’s why I'm requesting LEGO sets. These LEGO sets will have two purposes. The first purpose is for students to want to strive to show good character because they want to "buy" these items. The second purpose is for when students actually get to take their items home! They will be able to work together with family members to build different things, using teamwork and problem solving skills we've learned in class, therefore continuing character education at home.

Any help is greatly appreciated! I want my students to be the best people that they can be!
