Treasure Chest Joy

Help me give my students lots of fun things to pull out of the classroom treasure chest!

My Students

We are a classroom of 28 amazing, excited little kids! My students come from many different backgrounds. Over half of my students are ELL learners and still trying to learn English. A majority of my students come from a low economic area.

Regardless of their backgrounds, my students love to learn!

The excitement in our room is off the charts. These kids come to school every day ready to learn new things. These sweet kids are the reason I love coming to work each day!

My Project

My students are doing such a great job of practicing good behavior. This year I have taken a new approach of mostly using positive reinforcement for GOOD behavior. I want to focus on what my students are doing well and reward them for that!

My students work so hard all week to be able to pull from our delightful classroom treasure chest!

We are in dire need of some cool toys and relaxing stress relievers for our treasure chest! My students work sooo hard for this and it is super motivating! Any help that you can give us would be greatly appreciated!
