My Students

The students in my class enjoy opportunities to participate in collaborative learning activities. Students can often be found working on projects, games or experiments in teams of two or more students. They have many opportunities to have collaborative discussions during the day. Our classroom is rich with books and magazines, and my students enjoy browsing the book baskets to choose a good-fit book for independent reading. Student writing, work samples, and artwork line the walls of the classroom. The children enter the room ready for a day of fun yet rigorous learning activities.

The children enjoy learning with hands-on and project-based learning experiences, especially if they involve experiments, art, or STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) challenges.

The children come from diverse backgrounds, and some come from families facing financial hardships. Several of them take home bags containing food to help them through the weekend. Regardless of whatever situation they may face outside of school, all the children come to school eager to learn and be successful!

My Project

When was the last time you played a good board game? For many of us, playing board games with family or friends was a common part of our childhood. However, technology has taken over and board games are becoming less common in homes and schools. I love to incorporate board games into my instruction as a fun way to review concepts while enjoying a little healthy competition. Playing board games also promotes good problem solving and critical thinking skills that will be important as children progress through school and enter the workplace.

The Reading Comprehension Board games I am requesting will allow my students to practice essential reading comprehension skills while also building effective teamwork and sportsmanship traits.

The games will allow my students to practice reading skills such as making inferences, using context clues, and identifying the main idea. When this project is fully funded, I will be able to provide my children with 8 new reading comprehension board games to be enjoyed for many years. I currently have a few similar games, but they are for lower grades that I taught previously. The new games will allow me to better meet the needs of my 5th grade students.
