Hello, I teach Spanish and English as a Second Language (ESL) at Martin Luther King High School for Law, Advocacy, and Community Justice in Manhattan and I would love to have some games for my students to play in order for them to improve their linguistic skills in each language. For my Spanish classes, I would like to have some Spanish Scrabble games to play with them. They could break into teams and play together. My goal would be for them to improve their vocabulary by forming new words, while at the same time improving their spelling in English. Students will keep a list of all words made and we will add them to our class vocabulary list. For my ESL classes, I would love to have Cranium to play so that they can learn to express themselves better in English and feel more comfortable taking risks with the language as far as speaking and improvising goes. It would be a wonderful opportunity to be able to allow them to have a personal hands-on experience with the English language. My school is low-income with mostly minority students, many of whom have had quite difficult lives to say the least. The majority of my ESL students do not speak English outside of school. I really want my students to improve in Spanish and English. We currently have no games and I would love to make class more interesting and exciting for them! We need to have more fun in my classes and make language learning more tangible for my students. Not only would it be fun for my students, it would be a very educational experience for them to play with the language and learn new vocabulary. We work really hard in my classes on grammar, writing, listening activities, yet it would be really fun to do something else to captivate their interest and inspire them in the language. I would be extremely appreciative if someone would be so kind to fund this proposal! Thank you for your consideration.
