My classroom is filled with a wonderful group of kindergarten students who love to explore, are eager to learn, work together as a team, and love to be challenged to think outside the box.
My students embrace each day with unbridled curiosity and a contagious enthusiasm to learn new things.
Our school serves kindergarten through sixth grade. Our school district strives to be a high performing District that celebrates the importance of each individual student. Our vision is for each student to feel that he/she is a valued member of the school community prepared for future academic and career success. We value diversity, self-sufficient learners, trusting collaborative relationships, and continuous improvement.
My students need basic board games to provide them opportunities to use their reading and math skills while also learning how to take turns, learn and apply strategies, cooperate and communicate with their friends. Many of my students have not spent much time playing basic and classic board games.
Playing board games requires participants to interact and communicate, problem solve, strategize, and work together.
Although I am a huge supporter of technology, much of our technology does not provide enough opportunities for young students to cooperatively interact with each other. Teaching them to play these games will not only provide new learning opportunities but also endless hours of pleasure with their classmates as they build new friendships and connections throughout the year. They will also be able to share their excitement and new game skills with their families at home which would encourage more quality family time together.
