Hello, I teach kindergarten in the Bronx. My students come from single parent, low-income households, who can barely provide basic food and shelter. I am writing today to request board games for the classroom. I, myself, have bought some board games with my teacher's choice money, and pocket money. My students just love playing with these games. My goal is to teach teamwork and critical thinking skills, by playing board games. I've bought games such as Candyland, Memory, Battleship, Guess Who?, and 100 piece puzzles. Our ultimate goal is to invite parents, grandparents, and siblings in our classroom for family games days. This is very important to me, and my students, because parents don't have the resources to provide such luxuries for their children, and this is an experience, which will be greatly appreciated. I would really appreciate the opportunity to bring children and their parents together, while spending quality time in a safe environment. The games will provide hours and hours of fun for my students, and hopefully their parents, this year and the years to come. I thank you in advance for your consideration.
