My Students

Our school is a small, rural school that accepts students from several neighboring small town communities. Many of our students come from low income and/or single parent homes. A significant portion of our student body have special needs and many are food insecure. For many of our students, school serves as a second home.

I want to do the best I can to create an warm and caring space for students to succeed.

On top of replacing worn out books and expanding my classroom library to increase its diversity, I am also looking to acquire tools and games I can use to foster a safe space built on teamwork, fun, and compassion for one another.

My Project

Games are a great way for students to relax and have fun (as well as a way to practice good sportsmanship and growth mindset). I want to provide my students plenty of engaging games and manipulatives that encourage interactive, creative play that offer an alternative to screen time. These tools also provide alternative learners other ways to engage with their classmates.

These games are chosen based on what my students are drawn to and have requested.

They love building and challenging each other to create bigger and more advanced sculptures. They love telling stories and word play.

These games can be used to enhance STEM projects, literacy centers and team-building morning meeting fun. Winters in Maine also provide plenty of indoor recess opportunities to use these games as well!
