Ms. Osman from Van Nuys CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need 10 language oriented board games such as Outburst and Scrabble to help students practice their English skills in an engaging way.
I am the high school librarian of a mammoth urban 9-12 secondary school in California. About 10% of our students are second language learners from all over the globe. Another 10% receive Special Education services. In order to help these students effectively master English and assimilate to the American peer culture, I have created a conversation program where ESL and Special Education students meet regularly with typical English Only Speaking peers to play games. In order to allow this program to flourish, I need to be able to provide a steady stream of engaging educational board games to help the ESL and Special Education students practice English communication and expression and provide our EO students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills and tolerance/empathy.
Many of our students are struggling with verbal fluency and linguistic expression because they are either recent immigrants from other countries or are intellectually disabled/autistic. These same students also tend to feel rather excluded from mainstream peer activity.
We are addressing these academic and interpersonal issues by designing a conversation program.
Every other week, ESL and Special Education students get together with English Only peers to play language board games such as Monopoly, Scattegories, Clue, and Taboo.
Through this spirited, motivational, and low stress environment, students gain greater comfort expressing themselves verbally and interacting with peers. And the English Only peers learn about empathy, leadership, and tolerance.
