My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching across the grades of all students who are struggling with their reading and math comprehension. My students are eager to learn, but perhaps need a different way to learn. I try to make our lessons stress-free, but when a child knows they are having difficulty learning, it sometimes proves to be impossible.

This is where learning while laughing would be beneficial.

We need to bring back laughter to our schools! Children need to understand that it is possible to giggle and learn.

My Project

Somewhere around 10:00 a.m. I start to hear children muttering "When is lunch?" or "I don't feel good." I know it is due to hunger and we do stop for a snack. The problem is more than half the parents don't provide their child with a snack.

In one week, I have gone through a huge tub of animal crackers.

I hate to see anyone hungry but I simply can not afford to buy snacks for my class. This is the reason I am asking for a variety of snacks. Imagine being able to give a hungry student a choice of a healthy snack such as a Kind bar?

We need healthy snacks such as breakfast bars, Kind Bars, Protein Bars and more. Once everyone has satisfied their hunger, we can continue to learn for another two hours. That is a big chunk of time in our school day. Please help me students contain their hunger and continue to learn. A snack a day is the perfect solution. Thank you for your consideration.
