Mr. McFarland from Lexington NE is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning through Games!

Help me give my students the opportunity to expand our students' social skills and academic skills through playing games. Our students have not experienced the fun and excitement of sitting down playing board games.

My Students

We have the best students! We are a Title 1 school where 80% of our students receive Free & Reduced price lunch. Currently 50% of our students are English Language Learners.

Our diversity is our strength at our school!

We have students and families from around the globe who come here to become life long learners and build the necessary skills to be successful in life! Our students love learning. At our school, for many students this is their first exposure to learning and academic skills.

My Project

During our expanded small group times and indoor recess times we will use these activities to focus on social skills including, sharing, turn-taking, self-awareness, responsibility, kindness and others as well as using the content of the activities to focus on mathematics and language arts skills.

The students will have the opportunity to play these games while at the same time develop the skills of being able to interact with others in a positive and kind way.

The materials will be used on a daily basis to expand our academic learning, currently only done through our curriculum and text book materials. All students will a have an opportunity to participate in using these materials on weekly and/or daily basis.
