My Students

I teach fourth graders at a Title I elementary school in Alabama. My school educates approximately 530 students. One hundred percent of the students receive free lunch. I work very hard to deliver engaging activities to my students in a safe and loving learning environment.

They love learning new things and get very excited about becoming involved in their learning.

It is important that I provide them with many different learning opportunities that encourage them to be life-long learners. My students love being responsible in the classroom!

My Project

In my classroom, I focus on rewarding positive accomplishments. My students are in need of the Smilemakers Treasure Chest, along with the Smilemakers Treasure Chest girl/boy refill. Every Friday, the top scoring students will be able to select prizes from the treasure box. I utilize an interactive classroom management program and reward students weekly. The rewarding system is very successful; however, the prizes tend to run out quickly when students are doing well in the classroom. I also fund them myself, and it can be expensive. The Smilemakers Treasure Chest and refill will provide enough prizes for the school year.

My students love being able to receive a reward at the end of the week and they look forward to it.

Their eyes light up when they are able to choose their prize! This rewards system really helps the students to stay on task and encourages great character. We can spend less time on discipline and more time learning! Although my goal is for them to always do the right thing, without expecting something in return, I enjoy their excitement and am always able to witness their growth because of the rewards!
