My Students

As a teacher at a low income school, my students are faced with many challenges in and out of the classroom. Many of my students are on free or reduced price lunch and participate in a weekend snack bag program to provide healthy snacks through the weekend.

Students at our school need opportunities to interact with peers after school in an environment free from technology and screen time.

Most of my students spend their time away from school outside working on their farm or caring for younger siblings. Others will pay video games and watch TV in the evenings. My students need a chance to learn to work together and experience the joy of playing simple board games together.

Our school houses one of the regional autism programs for the county where these students are integrated into the classrooms for their education. We also have a number of students who have specific learning disabilities and have been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. All of these students make up the classes at my school. The board games club after school will allow a wide variety of students to come together to collaborate and build positive relationships, while having fun.

My Project

Students in second and third grade will collaborate together after school to play board games (Sorry!, Guess Who, Scrabble Jr, and Trouble to name a few). With students having increased screen time at home, playing board games as a family has been a thing of the past. The purpose of this club will be for students to sit down, relax and have fun together while playing various board games. Examples of games played will include: Scrabble Jr, Checkers, Sorry!, and Connect Four.

Playing board games teaches students how to work together, play by the rules as well as reinforces math and reading skills.

By purchasing these games, students will have multiple game choices in our after school club. As a classroom teacher, I have a small supply of aged games, purchasing these games will give my club new games to enjoy.
