My Students

I teach in a small, rural school district. Each year, funding seems to become smaller and teachers need to make important decisions as to what materials are most essential to meet their students' needs. While positive parental support is certainly valuable, parents can't offer the money and donations that are as equally helpful in updating and purchasing materials for our classrooms.

After observing my students respectfully playing some of the board games I grew up loving, I knew exactly what was needed to help grow their social-emotional skills.

Great community, amazing staff, and small, personalized class sizes are definitely wonderful, but our students deserve more.

My Project

Following directions, taking turns, waiting patiently, winning and losing respectfully, as well as strategizing are only a few of the many skills my students will have an opportunity to practice as they play the games I’ve chosen. With 4 wobble seats to sit upon, students will learn to play classic and new games in a comfortable, special corner in our classroom.

With tablets and video games being readily available to our students today, many have missed the chance to develop important social skills learned during the face to face interactions in board game play that are carried over into their everyday worlds.

When games such as CandyLand or Yahtzee are played without interruption, my students will be able to build their participation stamina. The wobble seats will give those students that have the need to wiggle the chance to move and still remain in the game.
