My Students

My students are a group of fourth grade students who are highly motivated when they know they are cared about.

The school is 100% economically disadvantaged and most of our students do not have internet or computer access at home.

Many of my students come to school after facing many obstacles in their homes.

These problems often find their way into the classroom. Some are homeless, some live in shelters, others are latchkey​ kids with no adult home for several hours after they arrive home or they are responsible for taking care of their younger siblings while their parents are working.

My Project

The items included in this project will be used to motivate my students to work hard. We have a class store where students may use class bucks earned to purchase items in the store.

Student successes should be acknowledged and rewarded so that they feel their efforts are not being overlooked.

The Cricut will be used to make shirts for students who show outstanding achievement in math and science. The cookies and other snacks will be used for students who arrive to school late and have not had breakfast. The hygiene products will be given to students as needed for personal use. We have requested glow sticks and black light balloons for our end of quarter celebrations.
