Making Learning Fun Again

My students need games, activities, and skill packs to practice and master language arts skills.

My Students

Learning can be so much fun, especially when it is done through interactive games. Games like these will encourage them to practice their skills often.

I have a wonderful group of students, who come from an economically challenged area of the city.

They are eager to learn and are hungry for as many opportunities in which to do so. As a whole, they need to enhance many different skills in reading and language arts, through which I am hoping to reach through these games and activities.

My Project

The materials I am requesting are specifically designed to target the skills I know are difficult for 2nd grade students to master. The games include synonym and antonym matching, word building with plural nouns, and activities that inspire sentence creation and enhancement. By helping me purchase these games and activities, I will be able to inspire and activate their brains in many different ways.

This project is one step in creating self-directed, highly motivated learners, that will thrive when exposed to any challenging situation.

By mastering the skills taught through these games, they will excel in all situations requiring reading and thinking.
