My Students

My students are excited and energetic learners who enjoy reading and spending time on projects. An observed need, however, is them not only learning how to work together, but also the benefits of working as a group toward a common goal.

In class we foster community through morning meetings, picture book read-aloud and dance party Fridays, but I want to further our relationships through the gamification of collaboration.

Games are the next step in our community building; having fun with each other is always a great way to make more meaningful bonds while also learning quick, meaningful lessons about working together, flexibility, perseverance, and humor.

My Project

The kids we are teaching today will be entering a world and workforce that values complex problem solving, critical thinking, creativity and collaborating with each other, among other people-based skills. Collaborative games provide fun, low stakes ways for students to continue to work on these skills with each other beyond the curriculum and long term projects we partake in throughout the year.

Students and I will play games on a monthly to weekly basis as we build community and then reflect on our gameplay for a rich discussion about moments in the game where they saw different benefits of collaborative thinking.

My ultimate hope is to combine it with the Habits of Mind as kids learn to develop the language of habits and how each helps them become well-rounded and critical individuals. This set of introductory games will give us many hours of learning, laughing and reflection!
