Math Game Lending Library for my Low- Income Families

I teach Head Start at a Chicago Public School. In my classroom I have 20 children ranging in age from 3-5 years old. Our school is located in one of the many housing projects in Chicago. We are an early childhood school, housed in a building with 3 other schools. I am writing this proposal so that I can create a math game lending library in my classroom. Most of the families I work with do not have the resources to purchase games to continue their child's education at home. By having a math game lending library children will be able to play the games in class as well as check them out to go home. This will give them an opportunity to learn how to play the game in school first. By playing games children are not only learning the basic concepts such as counting and number recognition, they are also learning important social skills such as taking turns, following directions and working with others. Please consider funding my proposal. Thank You!
