My Students

We are a fourth and fifth grade blended classroom at a Title One school. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the socio-economic climate of our neighborhood, many of our students are not able to experience brand new school supplies, let alone items such as books or technology.

Regardless of their lack of resources, our students are eager to advance their education and to become successful members of society.

Many of the students participate in extra-curricular activities such as band, orchestra, choir and sports.

My Project

These materials will encourage students to use the appropriate positive behaviors throughout the day. When utilizing the proper behaviors, they increase the academic success of themselves and their peers, dramatically.

These behaviors are rewarded with our school's "Eagle Bucks" which can be used to purchase items like a colorful earbuds to use with our Chromebooks, healthy snacks, pencil sharpeners and fun erasers.

The items in this project will go directly into our Eagle Buck store so the students can learn to budget their earnings and purchase the rewards of their choosing whether a fun item, a snack they would not have otherwise or an attractive school supply they cannot afford.
