Can We Play Games????
My students need interactive games to use during small group centers that will keep them motivated to learn. These include Math Blaster, magnetic letters kits, and a Sight-Words Challenge games library.
My students are a group of diverse second graders who are looking to learn. Not all students learn from a text book and I want to provide them the opportunity to enjoy learning through the use of games. I look at some of my students who struggle with basic concepts and they need practice.
I have a classroom full of eager second graders who love to learn.
Many live in low socioeconomic status who have many difficult situations that sometimes hinders their academic success. I have a very diverse class with students who have both academic and social needs. My school is in Nevada. We are considered a SIG school which stands for school improvement grant. and our goal is to raise both our math and reading scores. My hope for this project is that the games will support my goal on reading and getting them to enjoy reading and understanding the concepts to understand the text. I want to motivate my class to want to learn the concepts. I figured if they think they are playing they will not realize they are also learning. A fun way to cement the learning.
I am looking for age appropriate games that will help students practice difficult concepts in reading and language. My students come to school wearing their uniform and ready to learn but as you know we don't all learn the same way. Working from the workbook is not suitable for all learners so I am asking for fun games that they can practice skills during center time. I want them to feel successful and also build a community in my classroom. All games can have a group of four in which they will build team work as they are learning the concepts. Students will be able to work together and coach each other on the difficult concepts without feeling the anxiety of not knowing. I want all my students to succeed and I feel this will help guide them.
My project is important because it not only builds knowledge of difficult concepts in the curriculum but it also promotes team building.
A community of learners is what I want in my classroom, students who work together to help each other learn. Students learn best from each other as well as the teacher. I would like to see my students take charge of their learning and I feel this will help my students understand concepts that are being taught in my classroom.
