Recognizing Outstanding Students Each Month

My students need basic school supplies, like pencils, highlighters, and erasers - and 18 Periodic Table pens will come in quite handy in our Chemistry class.

My Students

Sometimes hard work and effort can go unnoticed, but my Chemistry students deserve to be recognized when they have a great month in a very challenging course. Encouraging them and celebrating monthly successes will convince them that anyone can succeed if they put their mind to it.

Many of my students live in poverty, without access to basic resources or supplies.

They are hardworking, determined, bright students who want to do amazing things with their lives, but may not have the home or community support to feel like they can do it. Our school is a high-poverty, urban school, with over two-thirds of the student population receiving free or reduced lunches.

My Project

Last year. I honored students with a certificate and a short speech. This year, I would like to be able to offer the students something more substantial. I have requested highlighters, mechanical pencils, scented erasers, a pen with a pull-out Periodic Table, and goodie bags to hold the items. When students go above and beyond what is required of them, when they put in more effort than they ever have before and make a concerted effort to show that school (but particularly, learning) is important and a priority - those are behaviors I want to encourage and reward.

The "Student of the Month" will go to 2 students each month: 1 from my Pre-AP Chemistry classes and 1 from my General Chemistry classes.

At first, I thought the award was just a nice gesture but soon quite a few students told me how much the award meant to them. I try to award not just the students with the highest grades, but look for the unsung, quiet heroes - the ones who may never have been recognized before as being special or worthy of any type of award. Confidence in Chemistry is key!
