Smashing Success

Help me give my students more resources for our gaming club. The students voted and would love to get Smash Brothers for tournaments.

My Students

I am proud to say that my school provides whatever it takes to meet student needs, but sometimes the cost can get in the way. This is why we need some additional technology for my classroom. By the end of the school year, I want my students to be comfortable using technology and be ready for 4th grade.

My students are hard workers who try their best in every subject.

They come in with a smile on their faces and are ready to learn. My school is focused on meeting the needs of all students, and all the teachers try everything they can to achieve this goal. Some students learn best with a little help from technology. Tools such as iPads, Chromebooks, gaming systems, and Makerspace items can help students read with apps and programs that can help them along the way.

My Project

I am very excited to start the Video Game Club again this year, but we need more resources. The PlayStation 4 headset charge station will be used to allow more players and the Virtual Reality headset will be used to take the kids to places that they have never gone before; the virtual world. Students will be able to travel to places to learn with new apps. The Super Smash Brothers game is going to be use for gaming club tournaments.

Using gaming as a learning tool can very beneficial for these kids.

I look forward to getting this project funded and get the club started. With more resources, this club will keep on getting better. Thank you!
