What's Gonna Work? Teamwork!

Help me give my students games and puzzles to build their cooperation skills.

My Students

My 4th-grade students come from very diverse backgrounds. Most of them are low-income and many are at-risk. Over 80% of the school qualifies for free breakfast and lunch. About one-fourth of my class also gets sent home with a bag of food on the weekends.

My students are very compassionate, creative, and active individuals.

They have a huge passion for helping others. They enjoy group activities and anything that gets them moving around the room. I want to provide them with meaningful, engaging, student-driven learning opportunities.

My Project

While I try to incorporate as much cooperative learning into the day as I can, sometimes it feels like it's not enough. My students need every chance they can get to work with others. This can be in a structured, academic setting or through free play.

With these board games and puzzles, my students will work on cooperative learning as well as other social emotional skills.

My goal for them is to develop empathy, continue to work on sharing and taking turns, and learn how to win and lose graciously.

As an added bonus, my students will also develop fine motor skills through games such as Operation, Perfection, and the Lite Brite. They will learn logic through Guess Who, checkers, and puzzles. Their engineering skills will take flight as they work with the magnetic tiles. So many wonderful skills can be learned through these games and puzzles!
