Everyone Is A Winner! Yea! :)
My students need 8 games including Clue, Battleship, Sorry, Yahtzee, and Monopoly so as to build some terrific character skills.
I teach 2nd grade in a very small town in Oklahoma. I have approximately 16 students and our school is considered low-income.
Playing board games, even though not as talked about or as trendy as video games, online games and TV shows, are incredibly good for one's mental and physical health!
The games I've chosen are some of the oldest and best; Monopoly, Life, Clue, Operation and the sort. People who play board games already know that games helps create positive, social entertainment.
Strategy board games help build good critical thinking skills. Kids learn how to take turns, share and learn to wait for their turns which are terrific character building qualities. These social skills are very important as they begin interacting with other children as well as adults. Children need to have fun times with other children and a board game can provide the time to chill out and enjoy one another. Learning how to deal with winners and losers helps build self esteem.
While playing board games, my students will learn how to begin to strategize and make decisions which affect the outcome of the game. My students work so hard and I think it would benefit them to have a reward such as a "Game Day" occassionally. By helping fund my project, you will help not only my class, but many other classes as well. Thank you so much for your support for education.
