Students in my grades 6-7-8 mathematics class attend a Title-1 school located in the central Phoenix area of Arizona.The school is small with a strong sense of family and community. Interacting with one another while playing games, putting together puzzles, or building something demonstrate their sense of belonging.
They look forward to our "game days" and partnering with one another to play a game, add pieces to a puzzle, or build something with available materials.
Watching my students interact as a community while learning and growing their brain fills my heart with pride and joy.
The Growing the Brain with Games project was designed with a "growth mindset" mentality. At our school, we believe that everyone can learn mathematics to high levels.
Our school's mission is to stimulate, challenge, and engage all students as learning colleagues, to instill confidence, create a desire for lifelong learning, and teach the responsibilities of good citizenship..
High engaging strategic games and hands-on STEM activities such as Legos and Play-doh are great ways to grow brain keeping with our school's mission. These activities will be utilized Wednesday "Grow Your Brain with Games" Day during my intervention period, as well as on specific days throughout the year of my core math class.
