Learning Can be Fun

My students need learning games, like the Spin and Learn Reading games, the Quest for the Jewels: Cause & Effect Game, and Kooky Carnival: Context Clues Game, to help them review the essential literacy and math skills.

My Students

Whoever said learning wasn't fun hasn't been in my classroom. My students are at their best when they are learning and practicing their skills in fun and interactive ways.

I work with a great group of fourth grade students.

They are little sponges waiting for me to disseminate information in a way that will capture their attention. More than half of my students are learning English as a second language and need the reading and language reinforcement and review necessary to help them be successful in school.

My Project

I am asking for your help with the purchase of various board games my students can use to reinforce the reading, language and math skills taught in class. This will give them the opportunity to practice those skills in a fun and interactive way. In addition to the academic skills my students learn, they will learn to work cooperatively with their peers and follow directions.

Providing these games for my students will provide them the opportunity for continued practice of the reading, language, and math skills taught in class.

It is impossible for me to be in front of every student all day long (and it would be extremely boring for them). This is a fun and interactive way for them to learn. Because learning really should be fun!
