Students at my school come from a working-class neighborhood that is very well integrated. They are every color of the rainbow and come from multiple backgrounds. One thing they have in common is that many of their families are working multiple jobs and having trouble making ends meet.
Teachers, counselors, and other staff members frequently purchase basic need items for students who are not able to receive them from their families.
This school uses a program of catching students doing the right thing. There is an ongoing conversation about "being a bucket filler" by doing good things. They receive incentive "bucks" for good behavior and deeds.
I want my students to have the same fun, exciting and wonderful experiences I had when I was in school. School should be fun and safe for all students to learn.
We are in need of new books for the classroom. We have an Accelerated Reading program and we use the Sunshine State winning books. I currently have none of these books being that I came from 2nd grade.
With these new 3-5 grade books students will be able to read and learn about various topics, and enjoy reading books on their level.
Students will be reading books and taking AR quizzes, earning point and receiving prizes. This is a great way to promote reading in the classroom. Students will be able to read at their desk, in the reading area, they will also be able to read with a partner. Let’s get these students reading.
