Ms. Maldonado from Independence MO is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need healthy snacks to focus during the time between breakfast and lunch.
"With the new day comes new strengths and new thoughts". -Eleanor Roosevelt. We have a diverse school with many students spending their childhood in two or more elementary schools due to hardships, such as homelessness. We work hard to build and maintain relationships because we often see students returning to our school at some point. They work hard to do their best they can be given any circumstances they might be facing. We try to provide a caring and nurturing environment so they can focus on their education and not any other struggles during the day.
All of my experiences leading up to this year as a first-year teacher has lead me to understand students must have their basic needs met to be able to focus on learning. Both in the kindergarten class I volunteered with and in the fifth-grade class I student taught in, snacks made it possible for the students to focus. Both of those classes had last lunch and this year my students have the last lunch.
The big gap of time between breakfast and lunch can make their work time feel like an eternity if they are hungry.
Healthy snacks such as fruit snacks, Goldfish, popcorn, and pretzels will help my students to be able to do the hard work to grow as scholars.
