Ms. Bell from Petersburg VA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Think Fun = Math Growth

My students need logic skills for practical learning skills. The Think Fun activities provide students with strategic skills they may then apply to problem solving in the classroom.

My Students

My students struggle when they have no break from the paper-pencil world of mathematics. My students love hands-on activities and need options that will enhance their problem solving skills! They love to play games that have a purpose and challenge themselves to learn more. The Think Fun logic games I am requesting will provide a sequence for them to use to enhance their problem solving skills while having fun.

My students love problem solving games and getting to use them during their break time.

The logic games created by Think Fun reach all of my students on their own levels and allow them to accomplish their personal goals. My students of all levels are engrossed with these logic games and cannot wait to have additional time to practice their skills. They can then apply those logic skills to problems within our math classroom.

My Project

The students of today learn with hands-on activities. In their daily lives, they are entertained and stimulated with electronics for a large portion on the day. I want my students to find that same stimulation through problem solving with the Think Fun games and activities.

Learning through games not only engages students, but it also teaches them that there are alternative ways to learn all things.

Math class does not have to be basic computations. We need to take our students to the next level and ensure students of all levels have the ability to be met where they learn.

With logic games like Rush Hour, Hoppers, and Chocolate Fix, students have a goal they need to reach, and they have to logically think through how they will get there. We are working on teaching students to plan with the end in mind.
