Mrs. Beckett from W Lafayette IN is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaging Our Brains on Rainy Days Part 1

Help me give my students activities like Connect 4, Lincoln Logs, and Guess Who to encourage logic, creativity, cooperation, and problem solving that they may channel their energy during indoor recess.

My Students

At our school, one can observe the students becoming expert learners. Their learning styles vary, as do their strengths and challenges. They come from many different cultures, as well as their background experiences. At times my students work individually and sometimes collaboratively as scientists, engineers, computer coders, avid readers, creators, writers, historians, and mathematicians.

Many are preparing for careers that aren't even defined yet.

So by becoming expert learners, they will be prepared to excel in whatever career they choose by acquiring the necessary skills. I want to provide the environment for them to excel and be accountable for their learning. They are in charge of their future. I am here to make sure they are prepared for it.

My Project

When it is rainy, snowy, or cold we must stay inside for recess. Sometimes our students get to rotate through the gym during the times the PE teacher isn't in the building. That leaves many other times that sitting for a long period of time to watch a movie has to happen.

Stimulating the brain with logic, creativity, cooperation, and problem solving activities will be much more beneficial to the students than movie or extra screen time.

LEGOs, marble runs, Twister, UNO, and so many more activities will provide the entire second grade with options to stimulate their brains during indoor recess while still giving them a break from classroom work.
