Beanbags for the Brain!

My students need a beanbag learning center.

My Students

How much fun would it be if you could play games and learn at the same time? That is exactly what I have in mind with this project. In my classroom right now, we have very little games that are as fun as this one!

I teach kindergarten at an all kindergarten school.

It is very rewarding to know that I have them for their first year of school. I believe that making learning fun is something that I should strive to do everyday in my classroom. It is important to me to do all I can to provide the best resources possible for my students. Many of my students come from a poverty stricken area in our community where they have little to no help at home, much less fun learning games.

My Project

My students need fun games that reinforce the basic skills of learning. Having this awesome game to play with my students will help them to see how fun learning can be! The beanbags help to reinforce the basic skills of both reading and math. This would be a great activity to play during whole group time for either subject.

This project will definitely make a difference in my classroom.

I can almost see how happy they will be as they learn and play together. I truly believe that learning and playing go hand in hand and this is the perfect project for that! Thank you so much for considering this project!
