Games Make Learning Fun!
My students need to learn and practice skills using hands on games and activities. We try to do more than just paper and pencil to get them to learn concepts in a fun way.
Our school district is a mostly rural district consisting of anything from farms to suburban type neighborhoods. Some of our students work on their family farms before and after school.
The students at this school come from a wide range of income and education.
Most of our students do come with many different experiences as well. This means teachers are having to be creative about how they teach so they can reach all of the learning styles.
The students I service are usually from lower income families and really need the interactive learning model where they can use their hands to learn.
Many of my students come from low income homes and they don't get to play many games. Even my students that are considered middle income families say their parents don't have time to play games with them.
Having learning games available in the classroom the students are learning more than the concept being taught they are also learning social skills in the process.
While working with other students they are able to problem solve together and increase their learning. They often will learn as a team and it seems to help them more.
I also service English Language Learner students that need to work with hands on activities to increase their vocabulary.
