I work in an Early Childhood Special Education classroom. Sixty percent of my students have some sort of special needs, and the other forty percent are model students. They range in age from three to five years old.
My classroom is the first school experience that many of my students will have.
Everything is new and exciting. Every day we enjoy spending time building with blocks, creating artistic masterpieces, engaging in dramatic play, and reading stories. My goal is to make our classroom a magical place that the students love to come to.
Before my young students start focusing on academic skills, they must build a foundation of social and emotional skills in order to be successful. The best way to gain these vital skills is through play. I am asking for a Cooperative Board Game Set, a Frankies' Food Truck Fiasco game, and a Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel game.
These board games are designed to encourage cooperation, communication, and lots of fun.
Playing board games allows my students to practice taking turns and working together. It teaches them lessons in patience and team work. These games are also great because they also facilitate fine motor, counting, and language skills. The board games will address a multitude of skills, but the kids just think they are playing a game.
