I teach first grade in Richmond, California. Most of my students receive free school lunches and face daily challenges in their environments we could never imagine. Despite their economic disadvantages, my first graders work very hard everyday to do their best. I am so proud of all of their work and success. I would like to be able to give them certificates and prizes for their work.
I am asking for a variety of school certificates for reading, math, kindness, hard work, and other positive attributes. These awards will help my students develop a positive self-concept and show their parents ad family members how hard they try. I would also like some prizes, such as pencils, erasers, and games to give them as rewards. These prizes will help the students continue to work hard in school. Thank you for helping me acknowledge my students efforts and showing them that we are proud of them.
