Helping Little Minds Grow!

My students need centers that will allow them to be successful in learning basic reading and math skills

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Many of my students come from a very low socio economic background. I have children with special needs and English as a second language. Many of my students did not attend pre school and are low academically but they love learning and playing games where they can be successful. I love seeing them be able to complete learning games independently - as one student says “I rock it!” when he complete an activity successfully! Love that he wants to learn

My Project

My students will get to be successful while learning basic skills. They will be able to have fun while learning - this motivates them to want to learn. I have watched them come out of their shells when they are able to shine at a task or be the expert at their center. They do not realize how much they are learning as they are laughing and enjoying themselves. I can differentiate the centers based on their needs. They will be able to choose from a wider assortment of centers and games making their learning more independent and successful for them
