All the Pieces Fit When We Work Together

My students need board games and puzzles to use in the centers and makerspaces in the library. The puzzles and games all correlate with library books and displays throughout the school year.

My Students

As a librarian 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 add to their library experience by providing my students with desperately needed books. They love to visit the library. It is a space where they can read, explore, create, and find solace to their day and lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households with limited English and receive free breakfast and 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". Having challenging and fulfilling library experiences for my students is my number one priority. I want to make their visit to the library an experience and develop their love for reading.

My Project

Our students will be using the puzzles and games as part of our makerspaces and centers in the library. Our students will use these materials to cooperatively work together using critical and higher level thinking skills. These materials will be used in the library and will be assessable to every student in our school. They will be able to use these materials and activities in small groups. Your generous donation to our project will improve our school library by helping us provide makerspace opportunities to our students that help develop cooperative learning and higher level thinking skills while having fun learning!
