My Students

We are a multicultural classroom. The majority of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. We have a large population of migrant students from various places. The largest group is students from Somalia. For some of our students, this is their first time going to school in America.

Many of our students are trauma-impacted, low-income students.

These students view school as their safe place and a place where they can be themselves. We have a very supportive community that is built mostly of refugees.

My Project

I am looking for fun games for students to play either with their peers at school or with their families at home.

Games help students learn to interact with each other in person, not over a device.

I am looking for fun ways to help students interact with each other and learn new skills. If these materials are used at home students will be able to bring their families together for a family game night. I want students to find ways to have fun and interact that does not include devices or games such as fortnight.
