I have worked within the Dallas Independent School District for six years, and have witnessed firsthand the adversity my students face daily. Extrinsic motivation efforts are vital to assist, and promote their pursuit of an education. This year my Fourth Grade Class conducted an in-depth study of the magical and creative author, Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss authored and illustrated an amazing book entitled; Oh, The Places You’ll Go. In conjunction with studying many of his works this work offered exhilarating writing opportunities, reflection moments, and offered a sense of hope to each child.
I now refer to my students as “Seussologist”! I desire to provide each of them with a t-shirt to serve as a memory of their academic experience this year. Each shirt will cost approximately $7.50 to be print. The front will read, ““You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” with an illustration of a hot air balloon taken from the piece and the back will read, ““And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)” with an illustration of a child moving a mountain.
Your support is needed and will be greatly appreciated.
