My Students

I have such a wonderful class this year. They are energetic and have such a wonderful amount of energy. They love learning through games and experiences! As a teacher, I want to focus on giving these students opportunities that are engaging and full of learning. The games that have been in our classroom have been wonderful and they have loved them and are always asking for new games or more challenging ones. Working with their peers is also one of their favorite things to do and by providing more games I can give them new opportunities to work on social skills and collaborating.

My Project

Games such as Trouble and Zingo Word Builder will make such a difference in the learning of my students. These games are educational and engaging. Through these games my students will not only be learning skills to help them read, write, and have good number sense, but, they will also be working on social skills with their peers. Each of these skills can be learned through each of these games while also providing a high level of engagement for my students. We all enjoy learning something new when it is fun and I want to be able to provide this for my students so their love of learning never disappears. This can be achieved by your donation to this project for my students. Learning should always be engaging and fun!
