My Students

My third-grade students learn in a Title I school near a military base. Many of the students in our community are socioeconomically disadvantaged, with over half of the students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Many of our students have experienced some type of family transition (single parent home, blended family, divorce/separation, homelessness, etc). The students at my school are all hard workers. They come to school every day, ready to learn.

My third-grade students are a very active bunch and are capable of doing amazing things this year.

My students set goals for themselves and they achieve them. They are smart, kind, and caring. They work hard as individuals and come together as a team.

My students are eager to learn and love whole group activities that allow them to listen to stories, cooperate with peers and attend to technology lessons. Our community has a high population of military families. We have a supportive community and administration, however, there are fewer funds for classroom resources.

My Project

The students at our school are eager and ready to learn, but their growling stomachs often get in the way of success! Many of our students come from low-income families, and they are often very hungry in school.

Eight year old children shouldn't have to worry about being hungry during the day, they should only be having fun while learning!

Each day the students are allowed to have a snack, however many of the students in my classroom's families can't afford to send a snack for them each day. Some days the students who qualify for free breakfast often miss the bus, so they come to school hungry and not motivated to learn. Some of our students lost their homes during Hurricane Florence. I will use these snacks and juices to provide nourishment during school, before and after school and on weekends.
