My Students

My scholars are 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English Language Arts self-contained resource scholars in a Title I district. I am currently assigned 20 scholars with room for growth.

Full of life, light, and eagerness to learn, my scholars are in need of positive reinforcements to reward their exceptional behavior!

The resource program was recently revived for the 2018/2019 school year and it would help me greatly to receive funds to purchase behavior incentives and reinforcements for my classroom to help keep my students on track and focused.

My Project

In my classroom I have whole class and individual incentives as well as positive behavior reinforcements that help my students stay motivated behaviorally and academically. However, these reinforcements and incentives need to be available on a consistent basis to remain effective.

Students LOVE picking the rewards they earn from putting in hard work individually and hard work they put in as a whole class.

Please help my students remain well behaved and focused for the remainder of the year by donating to this project and making my students beyond excited and happy for an updated box of goodies to pick from.
