Mrs. Lewis from Three Lakes WI is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Nutrition and Concentration

Help me give my students the food and concentration tools like a Weighted Lap Pad that they need in order to concentrate on their academics and provide that extra that they need to get through the day as growing teens.

My Students

I am a Junior High teacher in a rural/low income community. My students range in age from 12 to 14 years old. The students also range in ability levels, meaning I need a wide variety of resources and supplies. The students in the classroom also range in level of needs.

I need to provide a wide variety of resources and supplies.

I also may need to provide the basic need of food due to working with low income families, growing teenagers, and due to students traveling long distances to get to school.

My Project

Students may have a long bus ride, no food in the house or just being a growing teenager. They all come to school hungry or get to hungry to concentrate at some point in the day. I have always kept food in my classroom to help them concentrate on their academics instead of their rumbling stomachs.

Concentration issues and being off-task is a big issue in schools these days.

Teachers need many resources to help a variety of students be able to concentrate and become on-task. It can range from flexible seating, fidget tools, or therapy bands. With this project I can provide a variety of tools more easily to all students.
