My Students

With many new students arriving from Puerto Rico, my students will need extra support and supplies. My students have been affected by Hurricane Maria, some some students have lost their homes, family members and more. The 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 that 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.

My Project

My students are trying to collect AR points. This year my students like scary books and I don’t have any scary books. So these are the books they have selected. After the students are done reading a book they will take a short test and then they can collect their AR points. Our goal at the end of the year is to have 45 points and then I get to have a party.

These new scary thrilling books will help them achieve their AR points.

This will also help our classroom library grow and have new materials in them. A lot of the books in my classroom the students have already read. Reading helps improve all subject areas. I would like my students to enjoy what they are reading so I’m hoping to get the scary books for them.
