My Students

Our public school in Oakland, California often has rainy days. We are making kits for rainy days so that students have more games and options. Please help contribute to our cause to help students have enjoyable inside time!

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.

Many of our students are first or second generation immigrants and do not have access to standard school supplies and I want to make school somewhere they love to be. Please help create a powerful and welcoming learning environment for my new students!

My Project

Games like UNO, Trouble, Chess and puzzles will make a big difference in student learning on rainy days. Often times, students come back from indoor recess antsy and agitated. We are hoping that games can be a positive way for students to let out excess energy on rainy days!

Providing games for students will be a productive way to keep them engaged and let out energy in a positive way.

This will help teachers in having strong days, even when it is chaotic and raining outside! We want to encourage students to let out energy in positive ways and assist our yard duty staff in providing options for students. All the teachers appreciate games and options for students to do during rainy days!
