My Project

My students are inquisitive and are always looking for new ways to create and build things. They like to try new things and do activities that test their skills. In our afterschool program, students have the opportunity to complete their homework and spend time fostering creativity together. The use of these games and learning materials will keep my student's attention as they are always on the go.

These resources will give my students interactive activities that will engage their minds and their social skills, all for the love of learning.

The games and materials I selected will be excellent for our students who use their imagination to discover different worlds and build maps. My students are also very competitive. They like to challenge each other in trivia, math, and Pictionary. I have seen firsthand, the difference it makes when the students have activities that they can do all together.
