I am a Kindergarten teacher in Chicago, Illinois. This is my second year teaching and I am working hard to acquire resources for my students. My classroom is lacking games! I love to make learning fun for my students. I feel that games are great teachers in disguise. I would love to give my students the opportunity to learn through playing educational games. Educational games are a great way to truly engage students in learning. Games are also great skill-builders. I feel that introducing educational games into my classroom would jazz up the curriculum and peak the interest of my students. Another reason that I would like to bring educational games into my classroom is that my students come from impoverished families. Some families cannot afford simple luxuries like games for their children. Please consider this grant proposal and know that it will provide this class and future classes with many hours of fun (learning in disguise)!
