Restocking the Snack Closet

My students need snacks to help them get through the day. Some do not always have food available at home to eat before or after school. These snacks will allow students to focus on work.

My Students

My students are growing learners who need additional support to spark and ignite their curiosity and love of learning. Some have struggled within a typical classroom all of their educational careers. At my school, our team of teachers hopes to break that cycle by using engaging projects, innovative teaching, instructional technologies, and partnering with businesses to offer more authentic learning experiences. We hope to help our students become the future boost the area needs to open new businesses and bring new ideas to make it the booming beacon it once was.

My students have great potential to be the change our area needs.

However, we need to continue to challenge and enrich their learning environment. By having project-based learning as our main focus to try and re-engage and enrich their learning, we also need to meet their other demands. We need to foster within them to independently seek out challenges and persevere through them. We need to develop within them the ability to become lifelong learners. By offering a variety of opportunities, we can help these students become well-rounded individuals.

My Project

The snack closet it almost bare in my classroom and students are wondering where it all went! The type of snacks I have chosen meet my students dietary needs and also some of their comfort food choices. There are also snacks that are healthy and support focus and energy. The Kind bars allow my gluten free students to have something to eat. The fruit snacks and chips offer comfort food. The Gatorade offers electrolytes throughout the day to keep them energized and able to focus.

By having a variety of snacks, all students will be able to access brain-powering food to help them get through the day.

Every day, the students know that they can be successful and not worry about hunger at school.
