My students come from a low income/high-poverty part of the city where they need opportunities to succeed. Four and five year old children need to start their journey strong.
My students are eager to become lifelong learners.
Our school works hard to provide students with opportunities to create, construct, build, investigate, and explore! By providing a bigger variety of materials, students will be able to expand their knowledge. Students will ask more questions, make more connections, and ultimately ask to read and write more about their investigations.
My students need more experiences playing together to develop friendships, social-emotional skills, math skills, and social skills. In this digital world full of technology children need more opportunities to play games and interact with each other to build character and work together. Cooperative games from Peaceable Kingdom provide opportunities for children to work together - there is no individual winner.
Students will enjoy playing board games together!
Adults will help model appropriate turn-taking and counting spaces. Parents will be invited to play games too! Social interaction will help the students build social-emotional skills. Playing board games will help students develop lifelong skills.
