My Students

I teach in a small rural school, with students from grades 6-12, who face challenges every single day. We want students to come to school every day ready to learn and be successful, but we lack some resources for our students to use daily.

We have a diverse group of students who are creative, intelligent, and passionate.

Our school is a rural, low-income school. Our students work hard every day to do their best to make positive changes in their lives.

My Project

This project is asking for a variety of board games for a variety of reasons. We love to have recess, but with winter coming we would like to have indoor activities for them to do for thirty minutes each day.

Board games build social skills.

We want to improve all of our student's social skills and a great way to do that is through board games. It teaches friendship, goodwill, and communication skills. This project is asking for versions of Monopoly, PayDay, Pictionary, Uno, and Life.

Playing games can improve critical thinking and social skills. This project will help our students be successful in communication and have some fun.
