My Students

I teach at a school with 100% free lunch. Many students only receive food while in school. Children come from homes that at times do not have basic needs such as electricity and water. Older children have responsibilities such as watching younger siblings and taking care of the home while parents work.

Building community and future leaders are important qualities at our school.

Students have so many factors that hinder learning, issues such as abuse, drug use, neglect, poor living conditions, lack of food, and lack of clothing. Most students live in single parent homes, and the absence of one parent creates much stress that is sometimes hard to bear. Even with all these issues, students do want to learn.

My Project

Students learn through play. What better way to encourage learning new words then through games. Games help build community, increase vocabulary, and teach social skills.

Word games are the easiest way to teach students new words and how they are used.

Students can learn so many new words while playing games. Games help students interact with each other and are fun to play.

With these games students can have a variety of ways to play with word usage. Small group instruction will be easier with other students actively engaged in playing games. Students will learn to play by rules and increase reading ability by reading during the game. Games will help with engagement and desire to learn. Students will have a lot of fun while learning new words.
