My Students

I work as an ELL teacher in a K-5 building. My students speak a variety of languages. Many of the students I work with are considered homeless, with multiple families living together. In addition I have found that many do not have toys to play with when they go home from school. I would like to teach my students how to play some games while teaching English and social skills. In addition, I would like to have games for students to check out and take home to play with their family. My goal is to encourage these types of games versus electronics.

My Project

Many students today are bombarded with technology, iPads and gaming systems. When working with students who are learning to speak English as a second language, communication and social skills are very important. Many of the students I work with do not have toys or games to play with in their homes. I would like to give them some games that they can check out and take home to play with.

Learning to take turns, following directions, winning and losing, are all life long lessons and social skills that students can learn playing games.

My goal is to teach children how to play games that they can take home and play with their families. The games that I selected will reinforce a variety of skills: letter identification, phonemic awareness, number recognition, etc.
