My Students

My wonderful group of students are creative and full of energy. They want to become better readers and fluent in all math skills. They make gains, whether big or small, every day.

However, they need the resources to get there.

I am an elementary special education teacher at a Title I school with a 68% Hispanic population.

My school is an elementary school located in North Charleston, South Carolina. Some students come from broken homes, families that only speak Spanish, have an economic disadvantage, and 100% of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch. My students have not had opportunities or not have been exposed to everyday things. That is why I feel my project, Games Galore, will provide my students with the tools they need to be successful.

My Project

My students receive extra reading and math support. We work hard on reviewing skills and learning/ applying strategies in order to become more confident in our work. Every Friday, my students will have game day to review skills that they learned from the week. Having board games would provide a new creative way to practice these skills. In addition, it will help my students work on social skills such as taking turns and good sportsmanship.

It is very important to maintain an organized and engaging learning environment.

By donating to this project, my students will be given new interactive games so they can review their math and reading skills. When students are playing games, they often do not realize that learning is taking place. In addition, students will have paper trays to keep their work organized.
