My students need games like Monopoly, Checkers, Chess, Clue, Jenga, and UNO to learn the basic fundamentals of connecting in society.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Thinking back on your childhood, most all of us loved playing board games. My young scholars are the same way, but are not always given the opportunities, due to financial circumstances, to have access to these manipulatives in their childhood. As I have heard before and I like to say to my scholars, "Life's a game. All you have to do is know how to play it!"
Board games are a way for young scholars to build communication skills, relationship skills, and many other Social Emotional skills that are needed to be successful in the 21st century.
All children love games, but not all children in our society have access to multiple types of basic games, like Monopoly, Checkers, Chess, Clue, Jenga, UNO, and many others. In a world of instant gratification and participation trophies, these board games would be a wonderful opportunity for my scholars to learn basic social-emotional empowerment skills.
All children deserve to have the opportunity to be children and play games, and by helping to fund this grant, your generosity would have such a huge impact on my scholars.
They truly are fun, caring children! Seeing their faces light up when they come into the library and see all the games that they can play and learn from will be amazing. Your donations will make it so my students can receive even more of the proper childhood they deserve.
