My Students

I have a classroom of twenty-five third-grade students who love to learn new things. I need to keep their attention by varying the activities in and out of the classroom.

Around 400 students attend our elementary school.

We have fifteen classrooms of students at our one-level school. Our small, southern Indiana school is a school-wide Title I facility in which funds are limited. About 80% of our students receive free or reduced-price breakfast, lunch, and book fees. Our school works hard to offer many additional after-school opportunities for our K-6 students like Garden Club (Green Thumbs), Robotics, and Running Club.

My Project

Help me to help my students achieve their PBIS goals! Our school has just started PBIS this year. LES LOGIC is our theme. (I will be a leader. I own my mistakes. I strive for growth mindset. I will improve myself. I will be considerate.) I would like to raise motivation for LES LOGIC during in-person learning this fall, especially with social distancing requirements. Kids love to eat fast food for a treat rather. I would like to give them the opportunity to earn prizes of their choosing. For this project, I am asking for a variety of gift cards to help keep my elementary students working toward their educational goals. Once their goals are attained, they can eat their earned lunch at school. Fast food can be delivered to school for the child's special lunch. Special lunches will only be available one day a week so that more than one child can order at a time. This way, I know the student is actually the one eating the special lunch. We would also need a star and heart hole puncher to punch their PBIS Incentive Punch Cards. The students would also like to earn some scented pens.

Many of our students struggled with online learning last year.

LES LOGIC is a huge thing this year. A gift card for a prize or special lunch can be a great motivator for these students!
