Mrs. Raygoza from Watsonville CA is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need goldfish, granola bars, juices, and waters to take on the buses.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move. They love to read and love lots of positive attention.
Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
I want my students to learn, but they often can not concentrate if they are hungry. My students need a healthy snack to help them concentrate during their school day. The goldfish and juices are going to be used as snacks during our math workstations. It's important that they are ready to do math while having a full stomach.
The Quaker chewy granola bars are going to be given to the students as after-school snacks to take home and eat on the bus or at their house.
I plan to place the water bottles in a container so that students can feel welcome to grab one as they need or want to.
