My Students

My school is located in north-east Las Vegas. I love the students here. They are full of energy and respect for their teachers, but they need structure and life experiences. Playing games is a great way to teach social skills as well as how to use and manipulate rules.

I hope to get them ready for middle school and a successful future.

The community is primarily Hispanic and middle to lower class students. Most of the students are free/reduced lunch programs.

My Project

I am requesting a set of Silly Sports ad Goofy Games, as well a variety of Kagan materials that will be used to build up the class camaraderie and table teamwork. The Kagan system is designed to get kids up and moving and learning together. The ManageMats help students to see what their responsibilities are and where to be. The math materials combine content with Kagan structures to engage students. The silly games book gets the students up and moving, so they can get a brain break. I will use these materials to keep students engaged and learning happening.

After my training with Kagan structures I was inspired to incorporate them into many of my lessons.

I have six structures that I use regularly, and these materials will help me to incorporate more.
