    Lunch Bunch Idea
    By Lara

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I was in your shoes during my last year of internship in college. Having 28 fifth graders in a small class was difficult. Being in a rough neighborhood was hard and a lot of them didn't care. That is when I started the Lunch Bunch. I bought award ribbons and would place one on a student's desk if they turned in their homework, improved in a subject, etc. On the award, I would say, "Because you...., you are being invited to the Lunch Bunch today." Now, the Lunch Bunch was held in the classroom and the students and I would eat lunch together. Yes, I gave up my peace and quiet, but I would do it again to see how hard they tried to be in the Lunch Bunch. I was so proud of them and eventually I had to raise the expectations because so many of them were being invited .
    Good luck.
