Help me give my students a variety of floor puzzles to help develop their patience and problems solving skills during Family Engagement Nights at school.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach a class of 24 amazing first-grade students in a Title 1 community, located in the inner-city in one of the largest cities in the country, where all students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.
I have the privilege of educating my inquisitive, energetic, and intellectually curious class of first graders.
They love to learn and love to show others what they've learned.
To help them overcome the challenges they face at home, I am eager to provide them with creative and meaningful learning experiences, where everyone is heard and everyone is made to feel empowered and important.
Jigsaw puzzles create a great opportunity to bring our families together. Our families will develop patience, work as a unit, and strengthen their bond as a family. My students will also develop spatial awareness and the ability for logical thought, thinking before putting each piece of the puzzle in its rightful place.
When families work together on jigsaw puzzles, they learn teamwork, cooperation, and sharing!
Jigsaw puzzles are a constructive way to keep my students focused on a task, persevering until it's complete. My students will work on the puzzles during Family Engagement Nights, where my families will be invited to engage in good ole' jigsaw puzzle fun! My students will also use these during independent work stations, as well as during indoor recess when faced with inclement weather. Your generous donation will help fund materials that my students will enjoy time and time again.
