My Students

We are a Title I school with 90% of our students on free or reduced-price meal plans. We have many English language learner (ELL) students at our school. Over half of my students are ELL students. Our students come from working families and families who speak other languages at home. Some parents are not able to communicate in English with us, but we do have Spanish-speaking translators on site.

Our staff is very caring and committed to providing a nurturing, fun, and engaging classroom for all our students.

We want students to know that we will be there for them and give them as much as we possibly can. One great thing about our school is that we have one-to-one devices with iPads or Chromebook computers. For many students, this is the first time they have been able to use and engage with today's technology.

My Project

I am requesting items for many days of Double Dare inspired lessons with physical challenge games for fun learning! I want my students to have fun at school so by creating lessons with this theme I know they will have a great time. Some of the items I am requesting is for fun and safety in mind, like the knee pads and helmets. Students will get to dress up like the contestants on the show for chance to play by answering academic questions and taking physical challenges.

Incorporating academics with a day of play is truly one way I hope my students will love learning!

I am also requesting outdoor games for our physical challenges such as as the Archery Set and a Bullseye Bounce Cornhole Toss Game. Another challenge game I am requesting for our many Double Dare fun days is a Giant 4 Connect Yard Game. We will use this for quick timed play in all subject levels. I am really hoping to set the stage to engage!
