As a teacher, I feel like one of the luckiest people in the world to get to work with 24 wonderful students every day. I work in a Title I school in East Palo Alto, California. My school has about 90% of our students who qualify for free or reduced price lunch. All of my students come from families that do many things to help provide their children with happy and healthy lives. Unfortunately, many of my parents are either unable to provide their children with the proper education tools or are unaware of the proper education tools to help their children.
Many of the families have both parents working multiple jobs or even just one parent active in their lives working multiple jobs.
My kids come to school happy every day, ready to learn, excited about life, and I just want to give them the best education possible.
We are starting our first Spring Festival this year and we are focusing on a theme in academics. Our Fall Festival is always amazing every year with wonderful turn out. We want to expand and introduce an amazing Spring Festival.
We are requesting new interactive, fun and engaging math academic games.
These games include completing a math task while performing a skill. For example one of the games is a magnetic dart board. You throw your magnetic dart and add up the total of the numbers you hit. We want all the games to be fun and engaging while students are practicing her math and reading skills. Our plan is to make this event an annual event and hope to be as successful as our Fall Festival. All of the games we are requesting can be for all grades K-5. We know the students will love our new Spring Festival.
