Learning Through Playing

My students need a set of Reading Comprehension Instant Learning Games and a Find The Word Vocabulary Center.

Teaching has been one of the most rewarding and difficult things that I have encountered in my life. I teach 3rd grade in a high needs community in Tennessee and each year provides me with a new and exciting experience. My students are so eager to learn and unfortunately lack many of the skills they need to be successful. My goal each year is to help my students the best way I know how.

Each year my classroom is given a small amount of money that is supposed to last us for the entire year. This is a huge struggle for me, considering most of my money goes to basic supplies that the students were unable to buy. This leaves me very little money to purchase educational supplies that will enhance my student's learning. It today's world it has become difficult to engage students and I am always looking for teaching resources that will help me in my journey.

The resources I am asking for are a set of reading comprehension activity games and one set of a vocabulary center matching game. These games will engage my students and create excitement for learning. I want so badly for my students to enjoy learning, and I know that these resources would help me to accomplish this goal. These resources are educational and can be used for years to come with numerous different classrooms in my school.

Although this seems like a small project it will make a substantial difference for my students. My students want to be better and as their teacher, I strive to find the resources that will help them. Students today need motivation and I am here to provide them with that much needed and crucial motivation. I wish more then anything that I had an unlimited supply of money so that I could purchase all of these things. Unfortunately I am often times forced to use my creativity and time to come up with engaging and fun activities. These resources would be a huge help to not only my students but also to me.
