Mrs. Lappin from Wilmington NC is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Games, Diversity, Belonging=LOVE

Help me give my students a way to connect with each other in an inclusive, diversity friendly environment through literacy and social studies games. Games bring people together. Every single student matters and should feel included and loved.

My Students

I am blessed to teach 7th grade in a downtown Title 1 school with an amazing mix of students ranging from first year ELL’s (English Language Learners) to EC (Sp. Ed.) and AIG (Gifted) students. Many of my students' families struggle financially to provide the necessities and supplies for their children. No matter their home life, my students come ready to learn. So many over the years have told me that school is their safe place, their happy place. I love that I have been given the opportunity to love on these teenagers, even for just a short time, and hopefully have a positive impact on their futures. My students are changing the world. Help me give them the great start to this school year that they deserve.

My Project

The games that I have chosen for my classroom are at a level that my English Language Learners, my EC students and AIG students can work together to compete and feel included. They are able to be worked in to brain breaks and require little set up time, meaning more time for instruction and project based learning. From day one, these games will allow my students to get to know each other, make friends and engage socially with peers who are unlike themselves. The diversity in my classroom is incredible, games are one of the best ways to bring a group together. I have a few students who need flexible seating to wobble while they learn and play in order for them to succeed. The dry erase contact paper is to cover their tables and score sheets for written game play.
