My students are amazing hard working individuals. Even though my students struggle with daily obstacles due to various factors, such as poverty, they overcome and cope with their anxiety levels in academic tasks.
My students have worked in building their confidence, self-efficacy and growth mind-set by progressively practicing and expanding their learning on a weekly basis.
Our school is located in an urban community with limited resources. Despite their circumstances, my students continue to grow everyday by making use of our limited materials. My students are scientists and mathematicians that are going to positively affect the future. They work arduously and persevere despite their daily obstacles within and outside our school. My wonderful students need basic materials to meet their basic needs and to further flourish, nurture their learning.
My fabulous students are from a low income community where limitations are continuously present. These treats will help in more than one way by reinforcing skills.
Students are earning class points where they will be able to exchange for fake money to receive an opportunity to "purchase" something from the classroom's convenience store where they need to decide what is a better deal.
The treats will also be use to pass out to students who may be hungry in the classroom. The main usage of the treats will be for students to "purchase" with classroom fake money after earning it with class points. This system will help students reinforce work effort, citizenship, math skills (since they have to figure out what is a better deal), etc.
