My Students

I teach an inquisitive group of third graders in an inner-city public school in Arizona. With over 90% of our students receiving free or reduced-rate lunch, one might think that our students are poor, but that would be far from the truth! What our children lack in money, they make up for in their curiosity and desire to learn! My room is the home for the gifted students at my grade level, and they have an insatiable appetite for information.

My Project

Children love games, and so do teachers because they help practice and cement learning of skills that have been taught. That is why I want to supplement my curriculum materials with games that I have created.

My students love engaging in fast-paced, brightly colored games with their peers.

It is always a joy to hear them engaged in learning and learning to cooperate and work together. Learning is effective when it is both fun and meaningful. The games I create with the material will add excitement and interest to the learning process! Just imagine my students reinforcing each lesson with color-coded games that can both reinforce and check their learning! Making math fun is also an awesome way to make math more accessible to all my learnings!

Creating games and classroom materials using colored ink on colored paper really makes the games more attractive to children. There is not, however, money for such materials in today's school budget.
