My Students

I'm the After School/Childcare Coordinator, in a elementary school urban setting. My students range from the ages of K3-8th grade. During our enrichment time/ childcare program, I've observed my students enjoying hands on activities and engaging in creative learning experiences. When my students are with me from 3 PM - 5 PM , they're working on homework, reading and engaging in other activities. However, sometimes, I find myself searching for additional resources that will maintain their interest and keep them engaged. The students who stay with me til 5 PM are with me for several reasons, including but not limited to parents' work schedules or siblings being at the middle school activities.

My Project

My students will use the glue, contact solution, food coloring and glitter confetti to make slime, which they will LOVE!!! I will have students use the LEGO, 3 in 1 building bricks sets and wheels kit to engage in fun, creative building activities. They will also be able to to use their team building and cooperation skills. They will learn to share and help each other when building with the Lego bricks and wheel assortments. Students will use games such as UNO, Mancala, Monopoly, Jr., Monopoly, Sorry, Jenga, and Guess Who to have fun and practice important social skills such as turn taking, and being a good sport. Students will use the variety of DIsney Pixar character and 4 in 1 puzzles to work cooperatively amongst each other to complete a puzzle. The Brain Flakes will be used to have students practice hands on activities so they can be creative.

My students will use all the materials in this project during our after school/child care program to practice social skills and cooperative learning opportunities.My students will really enjoy using all these activities, games, hands on materials, and puzzles.
