TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need a Nintendo Switch to use as reward for positive behavior and academic success.
I work with students that need extra social and emotional support. These kids often have challenging behaviors that hinder their educational development. These kids come to me from different schools in the district, when interventions in the general education classroom are not working.
It's hard to determine why these kids exhibit these behaviors.
Many of these kids have experienced some sort of trauma. Many are on free and reduced lunch. Mental health may also be a factor.
The main focus of the program is to help these kids improve their social skills. We teach them appropriate coping mechanisms to deal with frustration along with all academic subjects.
My students will work harder if they have a meaningful incentive. Video games are a huge motivator for most of the kids. Students who are showing appropriate behaviors and completing their school work can earn money that can be exchanged for rewards.
The Nintendo switch is very popular with kids this age and would be an excellent option to use as a reward in my program.
It would also be a great way for the kids to practice social skills like taking turns and dealing with competition. Many of the games themselves promote problem solving and can have an educational benefit as well.
