My students need board games to play with during indoor recess.
I am proud to call myself a lifelong Brooklynite. I'm even prouder to say that I teach Language Arts and Reading to a terrific group of 8th Graders at a Title I middle school in beautiful Brooklyn, New York. Many of my students face challenges on a daily basis that most of us cannot even dream of, yet they are always looking to the future and for a better life. They know that with hard work and determination, they can make the world a better place.
Aww, we can't go out again! After hearing this several times during the final weeks of school, I finally asked my 8th graders what they would like to do during lunch, and they said games! If we can't go outside, can we at least have games so that we would not be so bored?
If you don't keep them busy, they will keep themselves busy.
That's when the trouble starts.
Anyone who has tried to entertain a child on a rainy day knows that without a variety of activities, things can soon get out of hand. Our students requested board games such as checkers, chess and Connect Four along with favorites such as Uno cards as a way to fight those rainy day blues caused by being cooped up too long indoors. They also pointed out that it would be a good way to meet friends and strengthen the ties that they already have.
Funds for extras like this are simply not in the budget for our Title I school, so we must rely on the kindness of strangers like you! We are expecting over 400 students in our grade come September, so we really need an ample supply. Please help our students have fun when "the weather out there is frightful!"
