My Students

Our school houses 40 children with autism. I have 8 amazing students in my classroom, who all have the autism diagnosis. All my students struggle with independence, confidence, and focus. My class has a daily snack, which the kids really look forward to. When my students are hungry they are unable to focus on the activity or task we are working on. Some of them come in late with no breakfast and have to have that need addressed before any learning can occur.

My Project

This project is for snacks for my classroom. We have a daily snack in the morning, between breakfast and lunch. I have requested that parents send snacks but it rarely occurs. Other days, some students will bring a snack but others won't. So, because of the lack of consistency, I have always provided snack for all my students and purchased it myself. This project will support my students everyday and will help with their attention and focus. Snack is in our daily schedule and my students know that once their reading and math is complete, it's snack time! It has also become a motivator to work hard and finish their work.
