About My Students

This project is more than games in a classroom...it is a full learning experience. It will turn the classroom into a fun learning experience.

I was sitting down in lunch with some students and they asked if I would play a board game with them. As we were playing I was seeing the "real" life skills they will need in the real world...and applying them in a correct manner. This got me thinking of how to bring games into the classroom. Here we are...

The plan with this project is to make learning into a game. This project major focus will be the growth of the students' vocabulary. These games are all games that deal with vocabulary and the correct use of those words. It will also deal with books we are reading in class and now using the books in a fun manner.

In Their Own Words

As a class we want to have fun and learn. How do we do that? By bringing games into the classroom. This will make us have a learning experience and we won't even know it. How cool is that? Learning and games? Nothing is better than that.

With this project we will be able to learn more than just our subject manner. We will also learn how to play games, be considerate and learn good sportsmanship. These qualities will help us in the real world.

This is extremely important for us because it makes learning fun. It will push our thinking, allow us to be more creative, work in teams and just have fun. This project will help us become better people and teach us more than a regular lesson can teach us.
