Mr. Harris from N Las Vegas NV is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

From Classroom to Boardroom

My students need a variety of board games such as Snap Circuits and Monopoly to expose them to different STEM career fields.

My Students

Our school serves students in Grades K-8. This fall, I will be the 5th grade math instructor for three classes totaling approximately 75 students from diverse ethnic backgrounds! I will also teach intervention groups for students who are performing math below their grade level. Fifth grade is a critical year for students who are about to make their transition to middle school and will need to utilize the skills to solve more complex problems.

We are a public charter school which receives Title I funding, with 87% of our students coming from low-income households and eligible for free or reduced-price lunches (FRL).

My Project

My students are very inquisitive and would benefit from practical opportunities to apply their math skills. This project includes board games such as the Electronic Bankers Edition of "Monopoly" and "Snap Circuits" which will be used in our Math and STEM centers. This project will help build confidence and alleviate any anxiety as students approach tasks that require critical thinking and analytical skills.

I want to support my students in expanding their knowledge in applying mathematical concepts while encouraging them to pursue careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

Playing Monopoly exposed me to money and how to effectively manage finances at an early age. Other games such as Snap Circuits (which includes 750 STEM projects) and the "24" card game (math operations) will provide them with hands-on experience in constructing projects, reading directions carefully, and exploring how they arrived to their desired outcomes.
