My school qualifies as a Title I School, with over 85% of our students living in poverty. This means that our funds are limited for teaching supplies. Our school also has the highest Hispanic population in the state. In fact, over 65% of our students are English Language Learners. Many of these students are still learning how to speak English. Through all that they face, they walk into the classroom ready to try their best and learn something new. My students are truly amazing.
Paper and pencils are good learning tools; however, games provide more fun and engaging opportunities to learn and practice skills. Through these games, students will practice reading comprehensions, division and multiplication strategies, build vocabulary, and much more. These games will be placed in learning stations throughout the classroom.
Games grab students' attention, actively engage them, and help build academic and social skills.
With many of my students being English language learners, I am always looking for ways to build their vocabulary. With the 'vocabulary folder game library, students will have the choice between 10 games. This will provide them with a fun and easy way to build vocabulary they might be missing. Along with that, the match and sort language quickies will allow students to work on grade appropriate vocabulary and phonics skills.
Students will be eager to play with the Power Pen Math Quizzes. They will have the choice between all major math topics such as: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and more.
I can't wait to see how much fun students have with these new learning resources!
