When We Play, We Learn!

My students need 12 board games for the opportunity to engage in meaningful play and conversation with their peers in order to problem solve and develop their English Language proficiency!

My Students

We need the opportunity to play! The students in my fourth grade classroom have had very limited opportunity to learn how to play board games. Playing games teaches many skills, including problem solving, communication, reading directions and taking turns.

Most of my students come from low-income homes where parents are working full-time just to put food on the table.

There is little time for learning how to play a simple board game or allowing the opportunity for social interaction. In the past I have seen that teaching my students to play board games lends itself to acquiring much needed social skills. In addition, the games that I have chosen will help the students build their English vocabulary and spelling skills.

My Project

I believe in a positive classroom community. Every week my students earn "game time." This is a reward that helps them work on skills while having fun! I am excited to allow them this time to practice conversation, create a positive environment and build self esteem!

Thank you in advance for helping my students learn, play and grow!

Most of my students have not ever had the opportunity to learn how to play board games and build their problem solving skills. You are helping me to build a community of confident and kind students!
